Flashback Friday - Desperately Seeking Susan - Trailer

This movie came out 25 years ago? How is that possible?!

Madonna was living Downtown and was cast before her singing career blew up. She was perfect in the role. I'm not sure what happened to her acting career. Bad choices?

The City has changed a lot since the early '80s. The film captured a pretty unique moment.

This trailer cracks me up. The narration is not great.

Have an excellent weekend.

haha..omg who didn't have that outfit??? I think it was her in the role and the role in her and that's what happened to her career - her personality/person is too present to become the part..now I am going to have to sit through Swept Away (2002) to ogle her wardrobe!! lol

Have a great weekend

dorina - I remember the Limelight, Danceteria and the Palladium. Good times.

Tracie P - Oh! I forgot about that film!! Man, it was terrible. William Dafoe was in it I think. I liked her wardrobe in that one too.
