c'est la vie, say the old folks

Comments

I've always really liked that scene in the movie. He's so relaxed (stoned?) and she's just so borderline manic, but it all somehow just works out, which I suppose could be a larger metaphor for a good number of relationships.

I remember reading somewhere at the time this movie came out that Travolta had to really dumb down his dancing for this scene so that he wouldn't look too good.

Great Valentines post... in a bizarre way!

Thank you.
I'd love to dance with that man!

I revisited you blog just to let you know that the C'est la Vie Say the Old Folks song has totally taken over my brain since I read your blog this morning.

Which is great as long as it doesn't morph into Robbie Neville's super cheesy 80's C'est la Vie.

I tend to think of Emmy Lou Harris' version.

Oh, I love that. I remember leaving the theater and going to buy her nail polish color immediately.

Happy Valentine's Day to you guys!

Yes, thanks for the earworm. Why do I always forget how much I loved that movie?

Uma Thurman single handedly revived John Travolta's movie cred with that dance. The power of the muse even if she is someone else's mistress...
