For The Boys: The world is at war and Eddie Sparks (James Caan), America's sharpest showman is at the top. That is, until Dixie Leonard (Bette Midler) comes along ... she's funny, she's talented and from the moment they meet they have the troops at their feet and the world in their pockets. Together they battle through three generations of war, from the frontline to civvy street, their explosive chemistry on and off stage makes them friends, makes them enemies, makes them heroes. And they do it all... for the boys. The Rose: In an Oscar nominated performance, Bette Midler portrays a rock star whose success is laced with so much booze, drugs and hard living it eventually causes her downfall. Trapped in a self-created hell, Rose begs her manager (Alan Bates) for time off from her concert tour. When he refuses, she seeks comfort and love in the arms of a handsome drifter (Frederic Forrest) but even he cannot handle her life of excess. Electrifying musical numbers, including the hit song 'The Rose' helped make the film (based on the life of Janis Jolpin) a pop culture classic.
