Content descriptions

Restrictions on Access Note: Digital content provided by hoopla.
Summary, etc.: In the summer of 1984, a small, low-budget film came out of nowhere and unexpectedly debuted at the number one slot at the box office, unseating reigning champion Ghostbusters and making its star, Prince, a household name. By the end of the year, the film was a multiple-award winner, a trend setter in terms of fashion, and recognized on many prominent critical "top ten" lists. Purple Rain: Music on Film explores in detail the behind-the-scenes struggles and triumphs of the film's making, from the trouble casting a female lead to star opposite Prince, to concerns that the movie's urban vibe and sound wouldn't play in Peoria. Featuring extensive new interviews with the film's director, producer, and assistant editor, Purple Rain reveals a 1980s cult-classic as you've never seen, heard or experienced it before. Let's go crazy...
