Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"An early, simpler, version of the unpronounceable symbol that Prince changed his name to during his dispute with Warner Bros. Records is painted on the side Prince's motorcycle's gas tank. William Blinn's first draft of the script was titled "Dreams". Prince didn't like the story and wanted the word "purple" in the title. The success of this project benefitted just about every division of Warner Bros., the box office grosses helped the film division, the soundtrack sales helped the record di"

Biopics Worth Watching (17 movies items)

"It's sad that there are no screen shots to choose from for this film. This is such a lively, encompassing film that you almost don't notice that Prince is actually a partially good actor. At times, you lose your focus in the drawn-out conversations, but that's a feature in most films. I love that my parents will watch this without peeping a word, until the music starts. You honestly don't think about it that much, but as soon as you realize it, you're humming along. I wish this were made more "

"Katsottu: 17.9.2011 Prince on vitun kova jätkä. Purple Rain on keskinkertainen musiikkielokuva, jossa Prince esittää itseään tai ainakin melkein. The Kid haluaa tähdeksi. Hänellä on elokuvahistorian hienoin prätkä, ja elokuvan tunnussävelmä on klassikko. Muuten leffa jätti hitusen kylmäksi."
