For the Love of Pam
I think it's a shame that Pam from "Urban Cowboy" wasn't in more movies. She really brings that whole flick together. She's got the Crystal Gayle hair, the Cadillac, the cowgirl couture. And you know when she's got her hair up in a bun, it's a special occasion--like a funeral or a fancy night on the town in "Houston proper." I also like how she knows the difference between bourbon and whiskey. And when Bud's wife crashes Uncle Bob's funeral, Pam says to Bud, "Come on, the family car's waiting." But you know what Pam really means is, "Be gone!" And when the whole movie comes to a head during rodeo competition and Charlie Daniels is playing "Devil Went Down to Georgia" on his fiddle, Pam shows up wearing this fringe-y halter top thing and you just KNOW she had it made especially for that occasion. That's class.
