Saturday night we watched the 1975 movie DOGPOUND SHUFFLE with Ron Moody and David Soul. It's about two hoboes who begin and song and dance act to raise $30 to get one's dog out of the pound! I haven't seen the film in 20 years, and I fell in love with it all over again. Seeing this film reminds me just how vital it is in to keep the smaller films alive. Their existence is getting squeezed out by the multiplex's hostile takeover of SPIDERMAN 15. Sometimes all people need is a modest little movie of everyday people doing ordinary things.
