La febbre del sabato sera ( visu )
2 editions published in 2002 in Multiple languages and English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
La febbre del sabato sera è il film che più rappresenta lo spirito che aleggiava negli anni settanta. In questo film viene raccontata la vita dei giovani dell'epoca dal punto di vista di Tony Manero (interpretato da John Travolta), un ragazzo di origini italiane che vive in un sobborgo di New York lavorando come commesso in un negozio di vernici. La sua vita è basata sul ballo e sul sabato sera, quando si scatena in pista; nelle discoteche da lui frequentate Tony è il re: tutte le ragazze impazziscono solo a vederlo, e gode del rispetto di tutti. Durante le visite in discoteca conosce Stephanie, che al contrario di lui è una ragazza istruita e di alto ceto sociale: una persona che sa ciò che vuole. Nonostante le differenze, i due si avvicinano e iniziano una preparazione più o meno regolare per la partecipazione al concorso di danza della discoteca. Con qualche difficoltà, e grazie alle simpatie del pubblico, riusciranno a vincere la gara (pur non avendolo davvero meritato, visto che secondo Tony la coppia portoricana meritava la vittoria). Celebre rimane il ballo tra Stephanie e Tony, quest'ultimo vestito con pantaloni "a zampa" bianchi, giacca bianca, gilet bianco e camicia scura, sulle note di "More than a woman" dei Bee Gees
Elegidos del Gheto [videorecording] ( visu )
1 edition published in 2004 in Spanish and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The overemphatic acting of Robby Benson was something of an endurance test to certain critics of the 1980s, but even these carpers were impressed by Benson's outstanding performance in The Chosen. Set in the Brooklyn of the 1940s, the film elucidates the friendship between two young Jews of differing factions. Benson is Hassidic, while Barry Miller is a Zionist. Though separated ideologically, the boys find a common bond through their love of stickball. Rod Steiger costars as Benson's rabbi father, delivering a performance virtually devoid of the mannered stridency that has marred many of his more recent film work. Based on a novel by Chaim Potok, The Chosen has become an annual Hannukah-season TV attraction in many cities; years after its release, the film served as the basis for a short-lived Broadway musical
