American Graffiti
George Lucas' first big box-office smash, from 1973, inspired by the drive-in restaurants and car-cruising culture of his native Modesto, CA, was a touchstone film. It kicked the nostalgia business into high gear, launched the career of Harrison Ford, and helped pave the way for two '50s/'60s-based hit sitcoms with actors from the film (Ron Howard in "Happy Days," Cindy Williams in "Happy Days" spinoff "Laverne & Shirley"). It also made legendary raspy-voiced border-radio DJ Wolfman Jack a household name (and voice). The cast also included a slew of actors who would become familiar names on film and/or TV: Richard Dreyfuss, Mackenzie Phillips, Candy Clark, Paul Le Mat, Charles Martin Smith, Bo Hopkins, Kay Lenz, Joe Spano, Debralee Scott ... and Suzanne Somers as the blonde in the T-Bird.

Film
The Big Lebowski (1998)
Mixing Leninist philosophy, mistaken identity, crazy characters, a kidnapping plot and a deep love of bowling, Joel and Ethan Coen unleashed upon an unsuspecting world the many glories of 'The Big Lebowski.' Jeff Bridges plays Jeff Lebowski, known as "The Dude," a laid-back, easygoing (and Eagles-hating) burnout who happens to have the same name as a millionaire (David Huddleston) whose wife (Tara Reid) owes a lot of dangerous people a whole bunch of money. A soiled rug (that really tied the room together) launches the Dude spiraling through the Los Angeles underworld – with White Russian firmly in hand. Along the way, you're sideswiped by a vast array of bizarre characters, including Vietnam veteran Walter Sobchak (John Goodman), their hapless pal Donny Kerabatsos (Steve Buscemi), and the hotshot purple-clad bowling rival known as The Jesus (John Turturro). The star-studded cast also includes Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Elliott, Ben Gazzara, Peter Stomare, Torsten Voges, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Jon Polito, David Thewlis, singer Jimmie Dale Gilmore and comedian Dom Irrera.

David Lynch: The Art Life
"David Lynch: The Art Life" looks at Lynch’s art, music and early films, shining a light into the dark corners of his unique world and giving audiences a better understanding of the man and the artist. As he says, “I think every time you do something, like a painting or whatever, you go with ideas, and sometimes the past can conjure those ideas and color them. Even if they’re new ideas, the past colors them.” We’re invited in and given private views from Lynch’s compound and painting studio in the hills high above Hollywood, as he tells personal stories that unfold like scenes from his films. Strange characters come into focus only to fade again into the past, all leaving an indelible mark.
