Leo and Loree (1980) Poster

Ralph Malph from Philly moves to Hollywood with dreams of making it big, amazingly hooks up with starlet-to-be, loses starlet-to-be, gets back starlet-to-be, and becomes someone.

Executive produced and co-written by Ron Howard, this feature stars Happy Days alumni Donny Most and Linda Purl as two actors in Hollywood who fall in love. Most's Leo is made a clown to unglue humourless Loree, whose depression is based on her being the daughter of a Hollywood "superstar" Christina Harper (Shannon Farnon). The screenplay by Howard and James Ritz uses low comedy such as Leo being a champion belcher, as well party entertainment on the level of someone miming to Al Jolson. (That dates the writers). Leo and Loree's romance gets the usual A Star is Born conflict of careers, epitomised by an argument which is thought to be an acting class exercise, and for which they get applause. Director Jerry Paris uses awful songs by Jay Asher to tell us what we have already seen, but he allows the two leads to remain likeable. Most doesn't overdo his smarminess, and Purl, wearing a mannnish short hairstyle, bites her lip amusingly and has tentative fear in her voice when Loree asks Leo to live with her.
