“FADING GIGOLO” – A New Film Report

A dreaded thing happened as I typed this report: it vanished on my computer! I pressed every key I could put my hands on, but no key would locate my words.

Note: these aren’t all of the TV shows/movies in the world, just the ones that my generation might have overlooked.
