76 Marq. L. Rev. 767 (1992-1993)


Mike Nichols's 1988 movie Working Girl gave Melanie Griffith "a star-making showcase" for her talents; it gave Harrison Ford a chance to show that he could play light comedy; and its theme song, Let the River Run, won an Academy Award for Carly Simon. After watching and discussing the movie with groups of law students from our respective universities, we noticed that both the movie and the song make a religious claim, one that we take seriously.
