Dafriend or Dafoe – 021 – Streets of Fire

What happens when you mix 1950’s rocker style and 1980’s pop glam? You get 1984’s Streets of Fire, a box-office disaster which has found a new appreciation and legacy as the years go on.  Willem Dafoe’s second big-budget Hollywood film thanks to a referral by director Kathryn Bigelow, Streets of Fire deserves recognition for its boldness and style despite the miscasting of its lead star. Diane Lane and Rick Moranis all bring their A-game to this picture and we definitely recommend watching it!  Listen to the show now and then join in on the conversation on our Facebook page!
