This was filmed in 1989, but was not broadcast on Mtv until 1990, to time it with the release of the film, Dick Tracy. I was very much on the Dick Tracy bandwagon, and just like Batman I was the first in line at the local theater to see it. When I got there though, I was surprised to find that unlike at the opening of Batman, I was alone.
I had built the movie up in my head and totally bought into the hype. So watching it at the time was a crushing disappointment. Watching it now I can enjoy it. I don’t even think that Madonna did all that bad a job. Although at the time I might have been booing her as I sat along in a giant movie theater.
