“I KNOW YOU BETTER THAN THAT” - BOBBY GOLDSBORO MISCONCEPTION Musical star Bobby Goldsboro will be making his big-screen acting debut in Mardi Rustan’s science fiction flick, “Forbidden Lake,” which will feature original music by Bobby Goldsboro. False. The story was run by several newspapers nationwide on September 1-3, 1976, but no such Mardi Rustam movie was ever made, and Bobby has said that he never knew anything about it.  He has said that the idea of acting was brought up from time to time, but he never felt comfortable pursuing it.  “I just never saw myself as, what, a cowboy or something?”
This Disney comedy movie starred Bob Crane as the anxious father of daughter Kathleen Cody, disapproving of her boyfriend, played by Kurt Russell.  The film also featured Barbara Rush, Joe Flynn, Dick Van Patten and Bruno Kirby. The film was released on December 14, 1973, after a short delay by the studio. DVD released in 2008 by Buena Vista Home Entertainment, #0-788-8833-1.
“THESE ARE THE BEST TIMES” Bobby Goldsboro’s song “These are the Best Times,” played over the opening credits.  The song was written by Shane Tatum, the stepson of comedienne Phyllis Diller. The song was released only in promotional form to radio, on Disneyland Records.  The song has never been released in stereo. Some promotional short films were distributed of the song playing to clips of the movie.  An episode of “The Bobby Goldsboro Show” featured the song and movie clips.  It has been featured in several Disney music songbooks, and became a favorite for weddings.

Opening credits from “Gator”
“Gator” Billboard Magazine, July 24, 1976, Page 78 Top Album Picks, Pop, Recommended LPs A beautifully orchestrated album by Charles Bernstein that can be soothing and yet rhythmically vibrating.  Jerry Reed composed and performed “Ballad of Gator McCluskey” and Bobby Goldsboro composed and performs a melodic love song called “For a Little While” that has the potential for a single.  Both songs are the only vocal cuts.  Best cuts:  “Ballad of Gator McCluskey,” “For a Little While.”
“I KNOW YOU BETTER THAN THAT” - BOBBY GOLDSBORO MISCONCEPTION December 21 & 28, 1968, issues of Billboard magazine reported:  “Bobby write and sing the background theme for the new David Janssen film, ‘Where It’s At’.” False. Bobby was approached to write a song for the movie and did.  The producers changed their minds about the type of song wanted, and eventually used a song by Jeff Barry. Bobby’s song was then titled, “Requiem,” and was the B-side to his “Mornin’, Mornin’” single and later included on his “We Gotta Start Lovin’” album.
The song, “For a Little While,” written and performed by Bobby, plays over the closing credits.  It also appears in instrumental form throughout various parts of the movie. A soundtrack album, also featuring instrumental music by composer Charles Bernstein and opening title song by Jerry Reed, was released by United Artists Records in 1976.  It was re-issued by MCA Records in 1986, as one of MCA Classics.  The soundtrack, with bonus tracks, was released in compact disc format by Intrada in 2010.
