“Telling The Truth Can Be Dangerous Business”


Yes, it’s the song from the much-maligned film, Ishtar, starring Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman as two hapless singer-songwriters who, in the Hope-Crosby style, find themselves soon on the Road to Morocco. The believably bad songs were written by songwriter Paul Williams. In this opening credits scene, the duo are struggling earnestly to come up with a hit song.

In a just world, one day Ishtar would get the respect it deserves as a very funny movie.
