    It surely says something extremely sad about our culture that I find that women who are 20, 25, 35, even 40 have never heard of Linda Rondstadt -- who is the GREATEST FEMALE VOCALIST OF ALL TIME (in terms of earnings and record sales). More importantly, she did not do this by writhing naked on the floor of a stage, baring her breasts, doing bumps and grinds, pole-dancing or singing crude songs that demean women and are filled with 4-letter words. No, Ronstadt's voice was jaw-dropping, her performances electric When I was in college, every guy had two posters in their dorm room: Rondstadt and Farah Fawcett. She was a sex symbol who never sold "sex" -- she invited audiences to share her amazing voice and her artistry. She is incredibly modest, and SUPER intelligent (if you ever wonder how it happened that the governor of California and a rock star were lovers for years, this film makes you understand why someone as cerebral as Gov Jerry Brown found her a fine and challenging and interesting companion). She is so strong, so thoughtful, so without guile (except when she talks about drugs -- you can read Ben Fong-Torres' long interview with her for Rolling Stone form about 1979, in which she talks openly about the all the drugs she's done -- and that they didn't do anything good for her, so she didn't continue -- SMART woman!) Just a great, great, great film -- every woman (esp. young ones) who wants to be an entertainer should see this film to see how it's done (and learn how Rondstadt and a couple of others kicked open the locked doors for them). And THEN, they should go see "Judy" to see another great, hugely gifted woman who lost everything because she fell prety to bad managers, drugs, alcohol and bad romantic choices. (Ronstadt has never married; she has an adopted son and daughter who are now grown.)

    It was a wonderful movie. You should go see it. I'm old enough to have bought her records and enjoyed them. I never knew that she had 5 multi-platinum albums in a row. What a block buster artist! The movie had many vintage clips of her performances. But, alas at the end we learn that the unique gift of her voice was taken away due to her suffering from Parkinson's Disease. Sad.
