'Going Back' Out Today
The DVD for Bruce's early 80's movie, Going Back, is now out. We've been talking about it here for the past two months, now go out and buy it. It will probably go down as Bruce's greatest dramatic performance (Bubba Ho-Tep doesn't count because there was action and comedy) and has come under positive criticism for seperating Bruce from his 'B' movie image. Amazon has the movie listed for $13.99 in the US, so that might give you an estimate of what the price will be at you retail stores. Here is the synopsis for the DVD, courtesy of Amazon:
"In 1964 two high school friends, Brice (Bruce Campbell) and Cleveland (Christopher Howe) leave their suburban neighborhood in Michigan to spend the summer in the countryside before going off to college. They are befriended by a lonely farmer, Jack Bodell (Perry Mallette), who offers them a place to stay. As days pass, Cleveland helps Jack around the farm and finds in him the father figure he lacks, while Brice falls in love with a local girl named Cindy. The unforgettable summer ends too soon, but the memories linger. Four years later Brice and Cleveland drive up to Jack's farm and learn that there is no going back..... In this, his dramatic debut, Bruce Campbell, who is well-known for his horror and comedy roles, shows a depth and sensitivity that compliments his wry wit. "
So go and get the movie and add it to your Bruce collection. It will be a different movie than you normall see Bruce in.
Note: I posted one more article under this one today. It is regarding Bruce's appearence at a couple of showings of The Evil Dead Musical.
