Americathon is a pretty zany film. Here's a rundown on what Americathon is all about.
It's the 1990's and the world's oil is all gone. The U.S. Treasury is empty and a billionaire loan shark is about to foreclose on the nation. Sound familiar so far? What is America's solution? The ultimate telethon, Americathon! In Americathon Dorothy has a bit part as a Playboy bunny who escorts an adventure hero on the stage for a blood donation. That role is played by singer Meat Loaf.
