Do you ever long for those golden days of yesteryear? Technicolor was the rage. Musicals were still in their prime. The spotlights shined as people danced their way through life. If any of these feelings are missing from your life, then this may be the film for you. Robert Cary has directed and written (along with the movie's star, Isabel Rose) this film as an homage to the golden era of cinema.

The movie centers on the life of cabaret singer Billie Golden (Rose). Her life isn't the best. She lives with her mother (Alix Korey) and sings in the dingy lounges of the "airport circuit". She longs for the time when she can make a better life for herself and get to the plush nightclub with their velvet curtains and overflowing glasses of champagne.

An encounter with two men promises to throw a wrench into her grand designs. Greg Ellenbogen (Cameron Bancroft) is a guy she knew from high school who's become a high-paid corporate attorney. He could provide her with a very comfortable lifestyle and security until the end of her days. On the other hand, there is Elliot Shepard (Andrew McCarthy). He is a piano teacher who doesn't have much money (of course), but understands her passion for the arts. She finds herself caught in a dilemma, one that only Eartha Kitt can resolve. That's right, Eartha Kitt.

The film had its world premiere at the 2002 San Diego Film Festival and has been making the festival rounds with the title Standard Time. The studio apparently didn't think that described the film well enough so it changed the title for its limited theatrical release. It is scheduled to be released initially in only a few markets, but should make its way around the country in short order. (Marty Doskins/BOP)
