| Bruce and Kim make a couple to remember
Bruce Willis plays a workaholic Walter Davis, whose brother Ted (Phil Hartman) sets him up with this gorgeous woman Nadia Gates (Kim Basinger).There's one thing about Nadia you should know, though.If she has even a little bit of alcohol, she loses control and becomes wild. The legendary director Blake Edwards directed Blind Date in 1987.It has a brilliant cast.Bruce and Kim shine together at the time they were both oh so young.Bruce turned 50 on Saturday and you could say he now has the legend value.In this movie he takes the lead for the first time. The next year, in 1988, he had an action classic called Die Hard coming. Next year there should be coming Die Hard 4.0, so can't wait to see that.Other actors do a great job too.There are John Larroquette as David Bedford, Nadia's ex, who's doing an excellent job and William Daniels, who's known as the voice of KITT in Knight Rider and George Feeny in Boy Meets World is marvelous.Phil Hartman, who is sadly gone now after his wife shot him in 1998, is wonderful.There certainly is a cast to remember.I remember the first time I saw this movie back in 1994.I was the biggest Bruce Willis fan at the time and I enjoyed this movie very much.These days it doesn't work quite as good, but it's still pretty enjoyable flick.It offers some great comedic moments that bring a grin on your face.

Trivia

Several key interiors were filmed at Blake Edwards Entertainment corporate headquarters, Laird Studios in Culver City. Although Edwards had at the time been housed there since 1983 for around four years, Laird, had been renamed the Culver Studios, and was actually one of the oldest and most famous of Hollywood's studios. It was originally built back in the silent screen era by director Thomas H. Ince, the man who introduced William S. Hart, the famous cowboy star, to films. Ince himself shot a number of silent screen classics there. A southerner by birth, he designed his administration building as a replica of an ante-bellum southern mansion. Later, when the Ince studios were acquired by producer David O. Selznick, the building became familiar to millions of moviegoers as the logo on Selznick films. These include the immortal Gone with the Wind (1939) as well as Rebecca (1940), Intermezzo (1939), and "David Copperfield" [David Copperfield (1935)]. After Blind Date (1987), Edwards made a picture called Sunset (1988), a comedy about the fictional adventures of Wyatt Earp and silent screen cowboy actor Tom Mix in Hollywood, which also starred Bruce Willis from Blind Date (1987).
