L.A. Story Details


[[Performer~P101485~Steve Martin~stevemartin]] wrote and stars in this look at the promise and dreamtime of Los Angeles culture. [[Performer~P101485~Martin~stevemartin]] stars as Harris K. Telemacher, a light-hearted television weatherman who does wacky comedy in lieu of reports since, being in L.A., he has very little weather to report. He spends his time roller-skating through museums and spending time with California's beautiful people. But Telemacher is fired and discovers that his girlfriend Trudi ([[Performer~P31778~Marilu Henner~mariluhenner]]) is having an affair. He walks away from the relationship and re-evaluates his life, getting advice from a friendly electronic highway road sign. The sign suggests that he call SanDeE ([[Performer~P55134~Sarah Jessica Parker~sarahjessicaparker]]), a sprightly and attractive Valley Girl he met in a clothing store. With SanDeE he experiences a liberating and carefree spirit. But Telemacher comes to realize that he has actually fallen in love with Sara ([[Performer~P70264~Victoria Tennant~victoriatennant]]), a tuba-playing British journalist who is in California to do a feature on Los Angeles lifestyles. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
