Written and directed by Floyd Mutrux (The Hollywood Knights, American Hot Wax), the Aloha Bobby and Rose DVD sets its sights on the good-looking titular twosome: Bobby (Paul le Mat, American Graffiti), who has a ‘68 Camaro and a dead-end job; and Rose (Dianne Hull, The Onion Field), who’s got a five-year-old son and a nowhere life. The two meet and quickly fall in love, which gives way to Rose’s fantasy of leaving the Hollywood streets behind and saying “aloha” to life in exotic Hawaii. But when a seemingly safe attempt to rob a liquor store to bankroll their journey goes tragically awry, Bobby and Rose find themselves on the run from the law…and for their lives. Barreling across nighttime L.A. in a bid to make it to the tropics, the young lovers learn that “aloha” can also mean “goodbye.”
Featuring a stunning Hollywood-after-dark sheen by legendary cinematographer William S. Fraker (Rosemary’s Baby, Heaven Can Wait), Aloha Bobby and Rose co-stars such familiar faces as Robert Carradine (Revenge of the Nerds), Tim McIntire (The Choirboys) and, in his first credited feature film role, Edward James Olmos (Stand and Deliver).
