"Y'know, it's hard to believe you're a grown-up."
"You think grown-ups have it all figured out? That's just a hustle, kid. Grown-ups are making it up as they go along, just like you. You remember that, and you'll do fine."
MATINEE | 1993 | Written by Charles S. Haas | Directed by Joe Dante

British-born film director John Badham came to the United States at the age of two with his mother and father. His 1977 breakthrough movie made disco cool, worldwide. The film was based on a 1976 @nymag article by British journalist Nik Cohn, who later admitted he had made up most of it. As a newcomer in New York, Cohn based the character who would later become @johntravolta's Tommy Moreno on an acquantance from the mod subculture in England. #ImmigrantsCreateCulture#JohnBadham#SaturdayNightFever
Deutsche Filmgeschichte (27) "Johannes Heesters (1903-2011), here together with Marika Rökk (1913-2004) in the filmclassic Hallo Janine (1939, by Carl Boese).
With an astounding 90-year career as a professional entertainer, Dutch actor and singer Johannes Heesters, may well have been the oldest active performer on the planet. He was born Johan Marius Nicolaas Heesters on December 5, 1903, in Amersfoort, Netherlands, and by his 16th birthday had made the decision to devote his life to the stage. He made his stage debut in 1921 and took the leap to films three years later. As a singer he specialized initially on Viennese opera, working on more mainstream material as his career progressed.
"Jopie" Heesters appeared for the first time in an operetta in Vienna in 1934. However, his career really began in Berlin. Heesters performed for Adolf Hitler and during the war, toored the front lines to boost troops moral. As part of the Nazi entertainment industry that created an illusion of happiness amid the carnage, he appeared on screen in escapist fare like: Illusion (1941), Immer nur Du! (1941), Die Fledermaus (1945). As he was never accused of being a Nazi propagandist, the allies allowed him to perform after the war and he easily adapted to the postwar German and Austrian cultural scene.
He stopped making films around 1960 and began to concentrate on stage, television, and recording work, and continued to do so into the 21st century, an amazing feat of longevity.
In 1997 he earned an entry in the Guiness Book of World Records, as the world's oldest performing artist. He continued to make appearances until shortly before his death. While he was revered by Germans as The Netherlands' most durable product, many Dutch people he remained a person non grata." @hetduitsehuis #johannesheesters#marikarökk#janine#hallojanine#diefledermaus#1930s#1940s#1950s#1960s#operette#vienna#berlin#geschichte#kultur#moviestars#kino#theater#musik#österreich#weltstars#carlboese#classicmovies#deutsch#deutschland @thegermanhouse
