Favoriting January 17, 2017: JONATHAN HERTZBERG Returns
Soundtrack fanatic Jonathan Hertzberg returns to spin a selection of cues from films of 1981, a year which has been referred to as "the last year of the 70s." Jonathan's exhaustive knowledge of John Lindsay and Ed Koch-era NYC as portrayed in film can be experienced and enjoyed through his "Dirty Old New York aka Fun City" video series. Check out Jonathan's past Morricone Island-curated shows of music from films featuring NYC preserved in all of its glory and teen-oriented coming-of-age films here and here.

Ladd company films were cool, but “Outland” sucked.

anybody remember SCTV's take on "Body Heat"? called "Prickly Heat" with Andrea Martin's Edith Prickly character -- "BOY are you STUPID! I like that in a man!" hah!

i was 21 in 81. fantastic time.

I would like to see Wolfen again. Yeah, HBO and Cinemax allowed multiple viewings of recent movies. It was fun.

Ken - i recently learned that he's named after an actual friend of John Carpenter's!

melinda:

I was 10 in 1981, and some of the movies I would not have been able to see in a theater by myself.
Avatar 7:29pm
Linda Lee:

most of them, probably!
Avatar 7:31pm
Linda Lee:

the nice thing about being in nyc at the time re moviegoing, was that every possible genre was available to see *in a movie theater as intended* !!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:32pm
melinda:

I think the first movie I saw on cable was All That Jazz. Also one of the first NYC-based films I'd seen, it made quite an impression.
Avatar 7:32pm
Linda Lee:

that was a pretty impressive film! very striking.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:32pm
melinda:

That would have been an exciting time, Linda.
Avatar 7:34pm

Wow, never heard this Keith Emerson soundtrack. Pretty great.

Linda Lee:

hard to explain how Mr Hertzberg's video series strikes me so deeply! as if i'm seeing my first views of my own city through cinema over again. fantastic.

was wondering if indy would make the cut.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 7:43pm
melinda:

@Linda: I sort of remember smelling cigarette smoke while watching Breaking Away at during a particular scene. It seems improbable now, but thanks for confirming that people did still smoke in theaters then. I liked the smell, actually.
Avatar 7:44pm

oh yes, we definitely did. balcony only, by then.

Avatar 8:05pm

Avatar 8:07pm
