In 1983, Private School exposed the world of high school in a way that no film had up until that point. As one of the earliest sex comedies of the era, Private School followed in the footsteps of Porky's and showed that girls could be just as raunchy as boys... and boy is this movie raunchy. The film stars a who's who of young talent including Phoebe Cates, Matthew Modine, and Betsy Russell (one of the most underrated actresses of the modern horror genre).

Russell has one of the hardest jobs in the film, not only does she have to ride a horse but she has to do it topless. According to Russell she didn't really think anything of the scene, she just did it because she knew that it would be important. She explained:

I did Private School because I knew it would get my foot in the movie door. It got me started in the right direction. I knew what I was getting into when I accepted the part. I wasn't really self-conscious doing the scene because I have no hang-ups about my body... We didn't totally equate nudity with sex like other generations do. Nudity just didn't mean as much to us. My generation had a different attitude about our bodies. We were more open and less inhibited. But it doesn't mean our values or morals were any less worthwhile than our parents. In fact, my parents weren't upset by my topless scene.

There's never been an odd couple in music like Cher and Gregg Allman. In the 1970s she was the reigning queen of pop and a bit of a cultural punching bag. Her music was (and remains) amazing, but she was critically reviled. You can say the exact opposite for Gregg Allman. Not only was he one of the most important southern rock musicians of the era, but he was an amazing songwriter.

When Cher and Allman got together both of their audiences were understandably confused, it really was a beauty and the beast scenario for many of their fans. The couple met in 1975 when she attended one of his solo shows in Los Angles, Allman later said that he didn't say anything to Cher at the time because he was so struck by her beauty, which is kind of romantic.

David Geffin set the duo up on their first date and Allman basically torpedoed the whole thing by getting rip roaring drunk. He later said:

I don't know how to dance, but I got drunk enough to where I did. I danced my ass off. This is when disco was just taking off, so we did some dirty dancing. She had one drink, while I had my 21, of course. When we got back to her place, she took me out to her rose garden, and all the roses were just starting to bloom.
