Warner Bros. released Dogfight on October 4, 1991. Nancy Savoca directed the film starring River Phoenix and Lili Taylor.
‘Dogfight’ Plot Synopsis
The Marines have landed! Corporal Eddie Birdlace and three buddies are on the loose among San Francisco’s bars, tattoo parlors and blue-movie houses. They’ve also organized a “dogfight”, a wager with simple rules. Each guy puts in $50. And the one who finds the most unattractive date wins. Birdlace finds a Rose. River Phoenix gave one of his most endearing performances as Eddie in “Dogfight”, a terrific and touching Vietnam-era saga set to a memory-evoking ‘60s-tunes soundtrack and directed by Nancy Savoca. Lili Taylor is equally indelible as “ugly duckling” Rose, who joins Eddie in a night of life-transforming impact. In a time to be marked by huge changes, they share the most dynamic change of all: love.
