“Broken Bridges,” starring country superstar Toby Keith, is the Country Music Channel’s debut entry into the world of feature films. Though it plays more like a televised movie of the week–complete with an opaque plot, much tears, and a happy ending–“Broken Bridges” is a guilty pleasure, thanks in large part to the surprising likeability (though not believability) of Keith.

Spearheaded by George Harrison, the Concert for Bangladesh was attended by more than 40,000 fans. The lineup at Madison Square Garden was a who’s who of the era’s most popular rock musicians: Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr, Badfinger, Leon Russell, Billy Preston and Ravi Shankar. The concert, along with sales from the live album, raised more than $10 million for the nation’s starving refugees.
