Crop And Save
I remember seeing the film, Rockabye, numerous times between 1996 and 2000. I wish a lot of channels, and you know who I'm referring to, should start airing this film a little more often, as it doesn't get airplay nowadays, which really sucks.
Anyways, let's get back on topic here. Rockabye stars Valerie Bertinelli (in one of the very first films that she was blonde) as a woman visiting New York City with her three-year-old son. During the visit, she was maced and her son was mysteriously kidnapped. She pleaded to the police for help, and they didn't help her at all. It seemed that all hope was lost until a newspaper reporter, played by Rachel Ticotin, decided to help her find her son.
During their search, Bertinelli and Ticotin discovered a black market ring, selling young children. There also some action scenes, where there was a shoot-out that killed Ticotin and Bertinelli killing a couple men with a handgun.
This film defines an awesome crime drama film, and I, for one, hope it comes out on DVD in the near future.
Pancho Barnes (1988)
I remember seeing this film around 1988-1989, while living in Frankfurt am Main, West Germany, when I was a small kid (4-5 years old). Looking back, I always thought Valerie Bertinelli's portrayal of Pancho Barnes was excellently executed in every detail. And the aerial scenes in that film were awesome. And the backstory reveals a lot about her upbringing, how she got her nickname, etc.
Personally, I feel Pancho Barnes was always overshadowed by Amelia Earhart in some respects, but after seeing this film over 20 years ago, it gives me a lot more perspective on women flying high. I hope this film comes out on DVD in the near future, as well as a lot of Valerie's films.
