Come Back to the 5 and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean

Cher, Sandy Dennis, and Karen Black sparkle in Robert Altman’s acclaimed film version of Ed Graczyk’s play. It’s 1975 and the all-female members of a James Dean fan club have reunited to mark the 20th anniversary of their idol’s death. They meet in a five-and-dime store in a small Texas town close to where Dean made his last film, Giant. The reunion becomes the catalyst for each character to reflect on their dashed dreams and disappointments in life. Cher’s turn as Sissy cemented her position as a star who could act as well as sing with her performance being nominated for a Golden Globe.
