The cinematic era of the early- mid 1970s , besides mafia gangsters (The Godfather (1971), and horror (The Excorist (1973), Jaws (1975) were also defined by hopeless romance stories such as Bobby Jo and The Outlaw (1974) and Ode To Billie Joe (1976). This was right before Rocky (1976), Star Wars (1977)and Close Encounters (1978), Saturday Night Fever (1977), Thank God Its Friday (1978), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Alien (1979) came along and redefined 70s era cinema.
In this pre Rocky era Columbia released the hopeless romance film Aloha Bobby & Rose (1975) which saw some moderate box office success, probably inspired by the killer musical soundtrack of the hit songs of the day.
This tale of two lovers did inspire teen romantics ( like myself ) along as I'd discover just how powerful life's overpowering vital emotion (L.O.V.E.) could be.
Come April 17th of this year (2018), Scorpion is bringing ABR to HD Blu. I have no information yet about the PQ of the transfer but a kids puppet show of this movie would be far superior to the old DVD release a few years back.
I got the release notification in my email from Blu-Ray.com
Release date is April 17th, oh I already mentioned that.
