Star Wars vs Annie Who

First of all, I made the best sandwich I had in a really long time.

Chicken cutlets, lettuce, tomato, mayo, on swirly pumpernickel rye bread. 

Sue went to visit her mom in the hospital, and hopefully she will be getting released soon.

This day in history “Annie Hall beats out Star Wars for Best Picture” The rise of the action-adventure blockbuster was on the horizon, but on this night in 1978, the small-scale romantic comedy triumphs over the big-budget space extravaganza. At the 50th annual Academy Awards, held at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, Woody Allen’s Annie Hall won the Oscar for Best Picture, beating out George Lucas’ Star Wars.
Annie Hall was seen as a major turning point for Allen, who made his debut as a triple threat (writer-director-star) with Take the Money and Run (1969) and proved his knack for zany comedy in films like Bananas (1971) and Sleeper (1973). In Annie Hall, Allen blended uproarious comedy with the offbeat and thought-provoking musings on love and relationships that had previously been the stuff of his stand-up comedy and written essays.”

Could you believe that a chic flic beat out Star Wars.  What is really funny is that 34 years later, it is like Annie who ??

Now Star Wars on the other hand, well that is a classic.  Ask anyone on the planet, if they know what star wars is, and they will tell you.

Annie Hall grossed $40 million

Episode One: $924,317,558
Episode Two: $649,398,328
Episode Three: $849,997,605
Episode Four: $775,398,007
Episode Five: $538,375,067
Episode Six: $475,106,177


Star Wars is an American epic space opera film series created by George Lucas. The first film in the series was originally released on May 25, 1977, under the title Star Wars, by 20th Century Fox, and became a worldwide pop culture phenomenon, followed by two sequels, released at three-year intervals. Sixteen years after the release of the trilogy's final film, the first in a new prequel trilogy of films was released. The three films were also released at three-year intervals, with the final film released on May 19, 2005.

Settle in for a quiet night watching dumb stuff on TV with Kyle and Luke.

Luke, I am your father.
