The Leo Frank trial and his lynching were also the subject of the musical PARADE, which was revived on Broadway last year with Ben Platt as Leo Frank.

Quite a few films, including one, Central Station, I've not seen since it was released. I counted 27 features, an average of almost one premiere/day.

Agreed. I will have to see it again. Brent Briscoe as Lou Chambers got my nod for Best Supporting Actor of that year.

I don't think I have ever seen so many premieres of post-studio era films bunched so close together. I really think that the scathing satire of criminality, To Die For, is a gem with knockout performances from Nicole Kidman and Illeana Douglas complimenting a truly wicked script by Buck Henry.

Here's a clip of Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond (who played Leo Frank's wife Lucille) performing "This Is Not Over Yet" from PARADE.

I saw that one last year. It was pretty bland, although Kathleen Turner was still good in it.

It was released the year after James L. Brooks's BROADCAST NEWS so SWITCHING CHANNELS is so meh in comparison.

This was an excellent production, and I'm glad I saw it. I do find it humorous, however, when the promo video has more elaborate sets than the actual production!

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074207/


Followed by:

01:00 AM - Scott Joplin (1977)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076674/


(Scott Joplin is the 4th film of the evening, so it may not be formally introduced.)
