The opening credits are done twice. The credits are superimposed over Daphne Heap (Margaret Hamilton) rehearsing "The Star-Spangled Banner" with a marching band in the Astrodome. She stops the song and accuses the band of being on the wrong key. The band begins again, and the credits also start over, with the same titles repeated with the "better" version of the song. One of the opening credits reads: "Title song by Francis Scott Key" See more »
Very strange movie about a boy working on wings and planning to fly away. Or at least about the Houston Astrodome. Oh yeah, there's some murder and sex. And some sort of Oedipal thing. Also, Margaret Hamilton (the Wicked Witch) appears in a cameo, sounding like her character from 1939. And there's some sort of Wizard of Oz statement being made. Ruby slippers, girls dressed up like Dorothy. Whatever. A waste of time. Some will pretend to like this eccentric mess, I suppose, but trust me, nobody is popping this in the VCR after seeing it once.
