Proof of Life
Why do Fools Fall in Love
In the mid-80s, three women (each with an attorney) arrive at the office of New York entertainment manager, Morris Levy. One is an L.A. singer, formerly of the Platters; one is a petty thief from Philly; one teaches school in a small Georgia town. Each claims to be the widow of long-dead doo-wop singer-songwriter Frankie Lyman, and each wants years of royalties due to his estate, money Levy has never shared. During an ensuing civil trial, flashbacks tell the story of each one\'s life with Lyman, a boyish, high-pitched, dynamic performer, lost to heroin. Slowly, the three wives establish their own bond.
Bean works as a caretaker at Britain\'s formidable Royal National Gallery, and his bosses want to fire him because he sleeps at work all the time, but can\'t because the chairman of the gallery\'s board defends him. They send him to USA, to the small Los Angeles art gallery instead, where he\'ll have to officiate at the opening of the greatest US picture ever (called \"Whistler\'s Mother\").

The Right Stuff
A chronicle of the original Mercury astronauts in the formation of America\'s space program: Alan Shepherd, the first American in space; Gus Grissom, the benighted astronaut for whom nothing works out as planned; John Glenn, the straight-arrow \'boy scout\' of the bunch who was the first American to orbit the earth; and the remaining pilots: Deke Slayton, Scott Carpenter and Wally Schirra.
Young Doctors in Love
An \"Airplane!\"-style spoof of hospital soap operas: a brilliant young trainee can\'t stand the sight of blood; a doctor romances the head nurse in order to get the key to the drugs cabinet; there\'s a mafioso on the loose disguised as a woman - in other words all the usual ingredients present and correct, though in this case the laughs are intentional.
