366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 319


The Date: August 14
The Movie: The Jerk (1979)
What Is It?: Steve Martin’s Navin R. Johnson tells the story of how he built a fortune on his armless eyeglasses empire and then lost it all. Actually, Johnson is more of a naïve doofus than a jerk, which implies that he’s got a mean bone in his body, which he doesn’t, and his romance with Bernadette Peters is very sweet.
Why Today?: On this day in 1945,  Steve Martin is born.
