In July of '82, things were all over the place, and this is one of our weirdest episodes yet as a result. We've got the creator of Happy Days chasing the success of Airplane!, we've got the start of the big S.E. Hinton landrush with Disney's Tex, and we've got one of the weirdest Chuck Norris films of the era. And that's just to warm up!
If you've ever wondered what it would have been like if George Lucas had starred in Smokey and the Bandit, you can finally find out. You want Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton in a big fat musical love story? We've got it. And it's time for Ron Howard's ascent to power to start with a comedy about hookers starring Michael Keaton. You'll learn the weird origins to two of the biggest power anthems of the '80s, and you'll hear Drew cry about one of his favorite movie stars. All that, and we'll throw in Raw Force, the single craziest film we've covered so far, all for the low low price of free. Who loves you? '80s All Over does, baby.
