26 Jan Throwback Diane Keaton
Diane Keaton in the 1977 film, Looking for Mr. Goodbar.
Looking for Mr. Goodbar is a 1977 American drama film, based on the acclaimed, best-selling novel of the same name by Judith Rossner, which was inspired by the 1973 murder of New York City schoolteacher Roseann Quinn. The film was written and directed by Richard Brooks, stars Diane Keaton, Tuesday Weld, William Atherton, and Richard Gere.
The film was a commercial success, earning $22.5 million,[note 1] but received wildly mixed reviews. Author Rossner, for one, “detested” it, although she praised Diane Keaton’s performance. The film did garner Academy Award nominations for supporting actress Tuesday Weld and for the cinematography by William Fraker.
