Before Glee, there was Fame where director Alan Parker encouraged us to live forever in this breezy musical that spawned a successful TV series and stage musical. Set in New York School of Performing Arts, we follow a group of students from their auditions through their college training to eventual graduating as singers and dancers. Choreographed by Louis Falco who worked with Nureyev and Prince, the film won two Oscars for Best Score and Best Song, Fame, sung by Irene Cara.
(US, 1980) Dir: Alan Parker Starring: Irene Cara, Eddie Barth, Lee Curreri, Laura Dean, Gene Anthony Ray.
