New on DVD: Who Am I This Time? (1982)

I first saw WHO AM I THIS TIME?, which is being released today on DVD, on public television's AMERICAN PLAYHOUSE during my college years.

This is a charming one-hour romantic comedy about an extremely shy man (Christopher Walken) who exudes confidence starring in local community theater productions. Susan Sarandon is the new girl in town who is his costar in a production of A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE.

The lead actors are by turns touching and sizzling as they fall in love. Is their relationship just "Stanley and Stella," or is it the real thing?

I recorded this on a Beta (!) videotape which hasn't received any play in recent years. I'm so pleased to be able to "upgrade" my copy to DVD and enjoy this little movie once more and am anxiously awaiting its delivery. I found the best price at Deep Discount DVD.

Highly recommended.

"This brings back memories!"

Doesn't it, though?! After I watch it I'm going to give to #1 Daughter to watch at college, know she'll love it and maybe she can share it with some of the girls in her dorm.

Hope you enjoy, Anne!
