B.S. Stars As B.S.

Here is the lovely Brooke Shields starring in "Brenda Starr".

This movie evidently was a big bomb when it came out in 1989...I don't know why. I think it is a great campy tribute to the long-running (only recently-ended) newspaper strip. The casting is absolutely dead-on. A few well-placed swear words toward the end of the movie are seemingly out of place in the context of the film, and therefore are even funnier than they might be otherwise (no swears in this clip, the first of nine).

There are plenty of funny/stupid things here to laugh at: "Donovan O'Shay" (Public enemy number three) is "Donovan Hochet" in the french subtitle..."Don't worry about me, boys...SHOOT!"...

My favorite part in this clip happens at about 8:15...
