Movie Trivia

You remember that clip I posted here showing some scenes from the 1973 film "Jeremy" starring Robby Benson?

Did any of you know that Robby Benson played Beast's role in Disney's 1991 "The Beauty & The Beast"?

There was another film in the 70s with Mr. Benson, let's see if anyone here dreamed of becoming an Olympic figure skating champion when they were young....I did. I watched this movie and cried my little heart out, but never could manage to balance on those skates. So come on people....anybody know the movie I'm talking about?

[Hint - "I forgot about the flowers"]

oh. I don't know the figure skating move but Robbie Benson played Daniel in the Chosen - one of my all time favourite novels. I read it every year. And the movie is not bad.

I know the movie you meanbut can't remember what it is called. Didn't make me want to take up ice-skating.

Ice Castles.

The one I wept over was "Death be not Proud".

A good Jewish boy too ..

It's Ice Castles - oh how I cried. Wept. Sobbed.

How I wished for a tragic accident which didn't so much leave me disfigured as challenged ... so I could triumph over adversity.

Ahh, the teenage years. So full of hope and dreams.

So this Robby Benson character. Clearly decided the haircut of '74 was working for him.
