Desperately Seeking . . .

April 24th, 2011 by Collin Canright | Filed under Media.

I don’t really recall the 1985 movie “Desperately Seeking Susan” much–I had to look it up at www.imdb.com to know it was a 1985 movie and to confirm my memory that Madonna was one of the stars. I don’t recall if it was good or know whether it’s the kind of movie people watch more than 25 years later.

I do know that it must be one of the most influential of title phrases. I see and hear it a lot. Tonight I heard it used in the Radiolab program “Desperately Seeking Symmetry,” and there are many new titles in the list from a Google search on “desperately seeking.”
