History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new.
I’m watching 1984’s Streets of Fire, and everything about the retro-styled production design heavily steeped in ’40s and ’50s — cars, clothing, tattoos — is everything that I see every day walking along Midtown sidewalks.
Mechanics jackets, hair pomade and cuffed jeans. Vintage blouses, pony tails and bangs. Rockabilly music, classic cars, hot rods, pin-up girls…vintage fashion, hairstyles and accessories. All this from a film released in 1984.
