- Synopsis / Plot
- Francis Ford Coppola directed this experimental musical about love in Las Vegas. Shot entirely at Coppola’s Zoetrope Studios, the film stars Frederic Forrest (Hank) and Teri Garr (Frannie) as an unhappy couple breaking up on their five-year anniversary. Frannie is courted by a piano player/waiter, Ray (Raul Julia), who promises to take her away on a much-needed vacation. Hank and his friend Moe (Harry Dean Stanton) encounter a beautiful circus performer, Leila (Natassja Kinski), who Hank manages to get a date with. The two couples dance their way through the streets of Las Vegas on Fourth of July evening to the songs of Tom Waits, sung by Crystal Gayle and Waits. But Frannie and Hank find it hard to forget each other, and the mood and music of the film lead the couple toward melancholy romances. In the controlled studio environment, Coppola was able to use video as an innovative aid to filmmaking and postproduction.
