    He, the movie, and Rocky played a very large part in helping me realize I was gay.

    He should have been nominated for Rocky horror..
    I can only imagine what audiences thought of that film 40 years ago!

    It bombed until they turned it into a cult classic midnight movie. I think I first heard about it when I saw it in Fame. According to IMDB:

    Director Alan Parker wanted a scene that showed Doris overcoming her fear and becoming an actress. He heard of the audience participation at the local screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) and went to check it out. He loved it so much that he not only decided to use it in the film, he had many of the "cast" from the local screenings appear in the film, as the people doing the time-warp on stage when Doris runs up and joins them.

    I saw it once in high school and then started going pretty much every weekend in college. It was a lot of fun at the time.

    This is one of the greatest movies ever. They could literally not have put a better cast together if they tried! Madeline Kahn was a comedic genius!

    pazmurder saidDamn..... so sad.icon_cry.gif didn't think it was that bad.

    Nor did I. But he has a good attitude, it seems. Brave guy. Patricia Neal and Kirk Douglas are other actors who had terrible strokes, and were able to continue acting despite their impairments.

    But stroke effects vary. My husband has had 2 full strokes, with body paralysis and loss of speech. But he recovered completely each time, largely due to quick medical response.

    I tell people any speech impediment they hear from him today is because he's an Italian from Boston, not a stroke residual. And he always smacks me. LOL!

    Truth is, no one meeting him would ever guess he had 2 major strokes. So stroke outcomes are different. Some are debilitating & lingering, as apparently in Tim Curry's case. While others clear up quickly, as with my husband. Variables include how large the clot is, where it strikes, and how rapidly medical care is given.

    Therefore, if you know someone who has a stroke, it may not be the end of the world, as is commonly assumed. Or if it's you yourself. They're not only survivable, but can be nothing more than a minor bump in the road.
