There was a photo flip book for "Hair"? I wasn't a big fan of that show or movie, so I wouldn't have bought it. You know how much I love the ones for "Grease" and "Ice Castles." Thanks aain for sending me yours when I couldn't find one of mine.

I loved that movie. The love song was the first song I ever got paid to sing in public (for a wedding). Holy crap, if I tried to sing it today, dogs would howl, tomb stones would rattle, the city would be evacuated, and so on. py

I still love that song. I have to find a copy of it now.

I don't remember these book things you all are talking about though.

The movie above is "Somewhere Tomorrow", and the guy in it is Tom Shea. Speaking of Robbie Benson, though, I remember getting to meet him backstage after "Pirates of Penzance" in 1980 on B'Way. Very nice guy...and I remember him seeming sort of shy.

Dina PS Loved the movie "Ode to Billy Jo"--also was a great book.
I think I remember hearing or reading somewhere that he is shy. I also saw him in an interview where he said some kid was picking on his kid on the playground and he (Robby) went up to the bully and said, "Don't you ever do that again," in his voice from Beauty and the Beast. Hehe!

"Death Be Not Proud" with Robby Benson was a true story and was filmed at the actual boarding school depicted in the movie which was Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts, from where I graduated in 1963. Aside from King Abdullah II of Jordan, class of 1980, Johnny Gunther was perhaps our most famous school alumnus, thanks to his author father John Gunther writing the famous book about his son's dying of a brain tumor while he was attending Deerfield in the late 1940s.

Robby did a great job in the movie, and the students thought it was lots of fun having the school become a movie set for several weeks during filming in 1975. About half the students agreed to cut their hair 1947-style so that they could be extras in the movie.
That's a much better experience than my cousin had when they filmed one of the ultra-sophisticated "Chuckie" horror movies at his military school (Kemper in Alabama). The cadets got so sick of the conditions that they refused to participate for a day and shut down production!

boo!
Robby was MUCH (still is !) cuter than that dude ! Dina supplied his name, someone Shea I think. Weren't you a fan of RB ? I liked the clip though. I think Sarah had a sweet voice.
