Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
Go With The Heat
Hands down this is one of our favorite karate movies of all-time. Full stop. In this episode we literally swoon over this entire movie, beginning to end, and in our final thoughts our only complaint is that we can’t get more. Not only is it a great movie, but being produced by Motown means it has the most amazing movie soundtrack ever.
Dominic explains his love of both Sho’nuff and Richie. Melissa has a few Laura moments over Taimak. John gives us all the details on Vanity. This is a great episode for a fantastic movie.
Premiered: March 22, 1985
Directed by: Michael Schultz
Very accomplished before this movie. TONS of TV work. Directed Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band, a movie that includes music from the Beatles album and Abbey Road set in a music comedy starring The Bee Gees. Oh and of course the 1976 classic Car Wash.
Written by: Louis Venosta (no wiki)
Produced by: Rupert Hitzig and Berry Gordy
We gotta talk about Barry Gordy. He is a legend. In fact, that is an understatement. There are few people as important as Berry Gordy. He discovered The Miracles. Then, with some coaching from The Miracles lead singer Smoky Robinson, he founded Motown Records. He would then go on to produce, write or compose music for The Temptations, The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, The Commodores, Stevie Wonder, The Jackson 5, and Gladys Knight & The Pips.
