Suddenly, MANY dozens of people are visiting my humble blog and finding me through a search for “Debra Winger” or “Richard Gere” or “An Officer and a Gentleman” or some combination of the above (with a lovely variety of creative spellings).
This happened after I posted the e.e. cummings-like poem many moons ago, too.
I get the cummings-related visits (heck, I, too, wrote a paper on “anyone lives in a pretty how town” when I was in college), but what’s with the sudden interest in Winger, Gere and Officer? What paper topic could be generating the hits? Something like this, perhaps?
- Write an essay evaluating the class dynamics, dialogue and sex scenes in this film in contrast to the same elements in Pretty Women or Urban Cowboy?
Or, and this I fear, is someone actually thinking of remaking the film?
