STAR 80
1983, Warner Bros., 103 min, USA, Dir: Bob Fosse

Director Bob Fosse’s final film is based on the true story of Dorothy Stratten (Mariel Hemingway), a Vancouver high school senior romanced by local promoter/pimp Paul Snider (Eric Roberts, in a career-best performance). Groomed as a Playboy model, Stratten becomes Playmate of the Year and is poised for a mainstream film career - but possessive husband Snider can’t bear to see her succeed without him. Co-starring Cliff Robertson as Hugh Hefner and Carroll Baker (BABY DOLL) as Stratten’s mother.


LENNY
1974, MGM/Park Circus, 111 min, USA, Dir: Bob Fosse

Dustin Hoffman plays legendary stand-up comic Lenny Bruce in director Bob Fosse's ambitious biopic. Fosse, aided by Bruce Surtees' gorgeous black-and-white camerawork, provides an impressionistic portrait of a comedian as troubled as he was brilliant and controversial, with standout performances by Hoffman and Valerie Perrine as Lenny's wife, Honey Harlowe.
