15 – (The almost made) Dallas Debs (~1983)

In this episode I’ll be talking, briefly, about Dallas Debs, sometimes called Dallas Debutantes, a screenplay written by John Hughes, at some point in 1982. Very little is written about the film, so I uncover what I can


“A raucous comedy about the Dallas debutante scene, where debutante balls are graded on the size of the ice sculptures.” (Aaron Spelling)
