“Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean”.

This image taken a few years ago in an eaterie in a Scottish Amusement Park always reminds me of a 1982 film directed by Robert Altman (originally a play by Ed Graczyk) which I’ve never seen but somehow think I should as I’m sure I would enjoy it.

The Disciples of James Dean meet up on the anniversary of his death and mull over their lives in the present and in flashback, revealing the truth behind their complicated lives. Who is the mysterious Joanne and what’s the real story behind Mona’s son, James Dean Junior ? (see imdb website)

The cast includes Cher, Karen Black and Sandy Dennis. In the film they meet up in in a Woolworth’s Five and Dime Store but I don’t think they’d have been out of place here……..Five and dime



I'm always pleased to read comments.....
