Quote:
On this day 35 years ago, Pink Floyd's The Wall starring Bob Geldof debuted in America. Conceived along
with the double album by Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, the film played in a single New York theater, yet grossed
over $68,000, a rare feat even today. Film critics Siskel and Ebert gave the film, about a rocker descending into despair,
“two thumbs up” and audiences flocked to its wider release on over 600 screens. It eventually earned
$22 million before closing early the next year. (1982)

I figured if you were to make note of an August 6th anniversary it would be a rant about Hiroshima . . .
