[4/27/17] The grungy, groovy, goofy Love at First Bite (1979) saw its wide-release in U.S. theaters 48 years ago today. The theatrical movie was well known for its signature song played during the disco sequence, the disco classic "I Love the Nightlife" sung by Alicia Bridges. Due to licensing issues, the song has been removed from most TV broadcasts and all DVD transfers, and replaced by a different song, a cover version of "The Man That I Love". The Bridges song is still listed in the closing credits, and is also heard on the original trailer (included on the DVD) which had it excerpted no less than three times. Fans of the song and the movie worldwide have been furious about its removal from the DVD release. Fortunately, "I Love the Night Life" was restored for the Region 1 Blu-ray released by Shout! Factory in 2015. For many years the picture was one of the highest-grossing independent films of all time. This movie had the same make-up artist as Dracula (1931), veteran William Tuttle.
