We've completed another year on Out of Touchstone, so we thought it would be fun to look back on the films that came out in 1988, starting with a rundown of the Top 10 at the box office and that year's Academy Award nominees. We follow that up with some recognition of our own - the Ronnie Awards - which sees us highlight our favorite films and performances from Touchstone's 1988 slate.
1988 comes to a close on Out of Touchstone, giving us another look at two of the studio's popular performers. First up is ERNEST SAVES CHRISTMAS, as the ever-charming Ernest P. Worrell helps to find the new Santa - but is his help even required? Then we discuss "The Queen of Touchstone", Bette Midler, as she and Barbara Hershey try to hold it together amidst the melodrama of BEACHES. Meanwhile, Chad tries to forget the TV-movie remake ever existed and Mike wishes he could just listen to the soundtrack instead.
