Street Of Fire 1984
Streets of Fire is a 1984 American neo-noir rock musical film directed by Walter Hill and co-written by Hill and Larry Gross. The film is described in its opening credits and posters as “A Rock & Roll Fable” and is a mix of various movie genres with elements of retro-1950s woven into then-current 1980s themes.
Jim Steinman (the melodramatic writer behind Meat Loaf‘s Bat out of Hell) is the author of many of the tracks here, and they have his typical rock & roll Sturm und Drang, especially when the backup group consists of members of Bruce Springsteen‘s E Street Band. Also on hand are The Blasters, Maria McKee, and Ry Cooder. The album’s hit single turned out to be Dan Hartman‘s “I Can Dream about You.”
