Wonderful Memories of a Breakthrough Era
1 May 2005 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

Can it be that Holly Woodlawn is approaching sixty !? Well, why not, as Jane Fonda returns post sixty-five, along with contemporaries Dustin Hoffman, Robert Redford and Billy Cosby. I suppose those others have used their talents to become film legends, names on the lips of virtually everyone past age forty (or thirty). But Holly, alas, a unique player at at turning point of gay/women's liberation, is just (for now) a memory.

Well that is too bad, and if we can get more people, ANYONE, to take a peek at this delightful, silly and charming (very) little film, Holly might manage a well-earned comeback. The film is (was) just a daydream, but boy far more entertaining than films costing literally a hundred times its tiny budget. So although we cannot bring back hilarious co-star Tally Brown, we should revive this little gem!
