(Meat Loaf, the singer is followed around by a fan named Marvin (also played by Meat Loaf) but through concert after
                            concert and song after song, the performer manages to stay one step ahead of his admiring pursuer. The singer's

In the tradition of such earlier films as Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Richardson enjoys himself only on weekends when he whoops it up with his buddies at the local saloon. His carousing exacts a toll on his relationship with Jodie Lynn Palmer, (Kim Basinger, in her film debut). Finally, Jodie delivers an ultimatum: either settle down and get married, or she'll skeedaddle to California, there to try her luck as a country-western singer. Real-life C&W star Tanya Tucker co-stars as Jodie's best friend and role model. Hal Erickson.  Also stars: Michael Parks, Gailard Sartain, Daryl Hannah and Richard Moll)

                     (An innocuous romantic comedy, courtesy of Robert Altman. Dooley is a lonely middle-aged man who is completely 
                         dominated by autocratic Greek father, Vadnis. Through a computer dating service, Dooley meets Heflin and is attracted to 
                         her. She's a rather insecure woman who plays in a rock band led by Neeley (who starred in JESUS CHRIST, SUPERSTAR). 
                         Neeley rules his extended family of musicians, singers, and hangers-on every bit as autocratically as Vadnis controls his 
                         more traditional family. Vadnis would never approve of his son dating Heflin, while Neeley so drives his people they barely 
                         have time for a social life. The film focuses on these two people (Dooley & Heflin) as they attempt to deal with their 
                        "family" problems and come to terms with one another.)
 

Courtesy of one of our newest Tedheads, Dana Lee (dabaone@yahoo.com), and the website she found: http://www.selvan.com/pc1.html, we have some great pictures from this film:

Here, also, is a link for TV Guide's review of the film:

http://www.tvguide.com/Movies/database/ShowMovie.asp?MI=10452

"...a rock band led by Neeley (who starred in JESUS CHRIST, SUPERSTAR). Neeley rules his extended family of musicians, singers, and hangers-on every bit as autocratically as Vadnis controls his more traditional family... Neeley so drives his people they barely have time for a social life...Neeley and the "Keepin' 'Em Off the Streets" band provide some worthwhile music, including the songs "Hurricane" (Tom Berg, Ted Neeley, Allan Nicholls) and "Fantasy" (Nicholls)."

                      Judy Lewis is the daughter of actors Loretta Young and Clark Gable. Comedian
Avery Schreiber, who with his partner Jack Burns was a
                      fixture on television
in the 1960s and 1970s, and who was also the Doritos chip "Dorito Bandito, Cruncher" died of a heart attack, 
                     January 7, 2002. He was born in Chicago,
IL in 1935. He was 66.

                     NOTE:  This listing is courtesy of Mianne Tripp.  All I can find on this movie is that it is a suspense thriller.

                 Note: This listing is courtesy of  Ann Stickford (thumperdances2@sbcglobal.net , one of our newest Tedheads. She tells me that she doubts the 
                                  film was done, but had it listed from when she met Ted years back, so I am listing it for the time being. Anyone know anything 
                                  concrete about this film? Google and IMDB had nothing.

 


                 Jesus Christ Superstar (1973)                                                                Jesus Christ


       www.rarevideo.com
(Based on a concept album project written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, and the subsequent long-running Broadway production, this  film tells the story of the final 6 days in the life of Jesus Christ through the troubled eyes of Judas Iscariot.)
                           
(Note:  Ted met his future wife, Leeyan, filming this movie.  You can spot her in numerous places, most notably in the Simon Zealotes scene - "the girl on the left in the brown outfit dancing", and the Herod scene, immediately to Herod's left,  wearing a blonde, curly wig.)
