Welcome to another mind-blowing new aspect to Victim of Time, the SUNDAY MATINEE series, where we dig up some of the greatest obscure films, and in this case, a Ron Howard-directed Made-For-TV movie that has slipped through the cracks, and still holds some impressive cinematic moments in the field of trash and rock'n roll. The power pop hits the band churns out on stage are worth your time alone, but the subtle nuances of the era will keep you coming back, just keep your eye on Clint Howard's teeth.
Cotton Candy is a great TV movie from 1978 that shows the trials & tribulations of forming a band and competing in the 'battle of the bands' arena, with some great songs composed for the film you won't hear anywhere else. The IMDB description for this film is just about perfect: " A group of high school friends form a rock band." And with how big of a fan you are of Clint Howard's 'Eaglebauer' role in Rock'n Roll High School, you're just gonna love him here as the band's manager, "Corky Macpherson," so fire up some popcorn and pop this baby FULL-SCREEN and get a mouthful of Cotton Candy!
