More of that Vinyl: French Postcards (1979, Willard Huyck)

A moment from Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz's woefully underrated French Postcards, treated miserably on home video with a shabbily "rescored" soundtrack.  Here, we see Joel (Miles Chapin) trying to make a date with Toni (Valerie Quennessen) via rotary telephone from what appears to be a student lounge in the dorm.   

Led Zeppelin III (appropriately with the alternate cover used for the French LP) and the Beach Boys' (sublime) Sunflower are visually represented in the background though not on the actual soundtrack.

Hey Ned! Jack Criddle here. Thanks for the comments on Rupert Pupkin Speaks. Should've specified that Ford is really young-looking in The Frisco Kid. And indeed still looks good today. Dude must have a Dorian Grey portrait of himself stashed away somewhere.

Definitely see Little Fugitive, it is magical.

Pretty sweet blog you have here! Do you have all these posters in your personal collection?

Thanks, Jack! Ha! Yeah, I WISH all the posters you see here were in my possession. Please do drop by again.
