The 70s

Children, gather round and let old grandpa tell you a story. In the 1970s, when the biggest star in the world made a football movie, it would turn out to be a weird, rambling, captivating satire of... everything? ... costarring Robert Preston, Lotte Lenya, and Bert Convy, and practically the first thing you would see would be Brian Dennehy's rear end. And the name of that young man was... Burt Reynolds. And the movie was SEMI-TOUGH. And now you know... THE REST OF THE STORY. This is Paul Harvey.......... Good day! Oh 1970s, we didn't appreciate you when we had you! (Pictured, Lotte Lenya. Yeah, I know what I said.) See also.
