Terry Barkley (Linda Blair): Daddy, I need to ask you a favor.
Lillian Barkley (Beverly Garland): [coming into the room] Well, as long as it’s not about skating, or disco music.
Ritchie bought me an early Valentine’s Day gift, a 55″ LG TV, and for some reason I felt the choice of what movie to watch first was significant, like a christening. When I perused my collection of classic films, my eyes kept returning to Roller Boogie, the classic 1979 roller disco film that is mesmerizing in its awfulness. I cannot recommend it strongly enough! Check out the first scene (set to Cher’s roller disco anthem Hell on Wheels—one of my favorite songs of the period), and you’ll understand my choice.
