Waiting for Guffman

Actor/writer/director Corky St Clair has moved from NY to the small town of Blaine, Missouri and written an epic masterpiece called "Red,white and Blaine" for the celebrations marking the sesquicentennial anniversary (that's the 150) of the founding of Blaine.
The amateur cast includes a dentist, two travel agents, a car mechanic and a fast food chain employee who all dream of fame and fortune. Corky writes to various producers and Mr. Mort Guffman will come to the one and only performance and decide whether it will make it to Broadway.


Continuity mistake: Although Corky's apartment is up a long flight of stairs (we see this in all of the establishing shots, as well as the scene where the cast comes to beg him to return to the show), during the scene where he is "wrasslin'" with "the Muse of Dance," the view out the windows is decidedly street-level.

Steve Stark, Councilman: He can act and he can sing and he can dance. There's only one other person in the world who can do all that, and that's Barbra Streisand.
