After her success with The Barrymore Trilogy Blogathon, Crystal at In the Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood is quickly following up with The Lauren Bacall Blogathon to commemorate what would have been the film star’s 91st birthday this September 16. September 14 through 16 will be devoted to all things Bacall, with MMC! turning its attention to HealtH (1980), Robert Altman’s rarely seen and very eccentric look at American politics and the health food craze. Considered by some to be lesser Altman (considered by Ronald Reagan to be “the world’s worst movie”) and proving to be the final nail in the coffin for the director’s relationship with 20th Century Fox, HealtH is an excessive, outlandish, and altogether wacky film that fascinates like few others.
Thanks once again to Crystal for the invite!
