“Broken Bridges”

“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.

Staging a rescue

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.
