If I have one, I have to have the other...and on and on it goes. This started way back, okay? When I was younger and I went to see a movie and I LOVED it - well, I wanted the experience to live on forever. So I would buy the book. And I would get the soundtrack LP, too, if I possibly could. Because the only other thing you could do was go see the movie again and again. And that wasn't always possible. I only just recently achieved my thrift quest for a VHS copy of Romeo and Juliet. Already had the book and the LP. I wasn't even a teenager yet when this movie came out:
You couldn't buy your very own copy of the movie to watch whenever you felt like it back then. But as soon as that WAS a possibility - well, I mean, I HAD to get them, didn't I? I was in high school when I fell in love with Redford and Newman in both "Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid" and in this one - "The Sting":
And it didn't stop as the years went on, either."New York, New York" came out in 1977. LOVED it:
Liza in a big-band era musical - it doesn't get much better than that.
