MIA On R1 DVD #8 Looking For Mr. Goodbar

Looking For Mr. Goodbar (Richard Brooks, 1977)






















 It was both popular and controversial in its day, culturally significant even, but is perplexingly hard to see now. Why the disappearing act? Popular DVD-enthusiast rumor mongering says it’s because the soundtrack is a pain to relicense.












Maybe, but haven’t a lot of these songs been licensed dozens of times for dozens of uses? Hasn’t the TimeLife Library worked over Boz Scaggs’ Lowdown or Bill Withers’ Use Me to the point where licensing ought to more or less come free with Happy Meals?
