Santiago offers his usual cornucopia of action set-pieces, including lots of gunfights, explosions and bloody bullet squibs. The stinger at the end was also a nice touch and totally unexpected. My appreciation of Santiago as a director increases every time I watch another film of his. The majority of his films may be nothing more than rip-offs of other movies, but he is a professional and is capable of turning out compact the majority of his films run 85 minutes or less , entertaining time-wasters.
BLACK GUNN - Three guys with white burlap sacks over their heads rob a Mob-run bookie operation and steal all the money, as well as the "payoff books" belonging to mobster and used car salesman Mr. One of the guys is shot dead while escaping and one of the surviving trio is Scott Gunn Herb Jefferson Jr.
Scott belongs to a militant organization called the Black Action Group BAG and he plans to use the stolen money to buy guns for his group so they can kill more rich white crackers.
Capelli is more interested in getting the books back, so he hires sadistic Mob muscle Ray Kriley the always entertaining Bruce Glover to find out who stole them and retrieve them by any means possible, including death. Scott give the books to his brother , who knows how important they really are. Kriley tears apart Watts looking for the guilty parties, raiding BAG headquarters and threatening the life of the young son of one of the members in exchange for the names of the people involved in the bookie caper.
Surprisingly, Gunn is able to resist her charms since he already has a main squeeze, Judith Brenda Sykes , but Kriley crashes the party and a shootout occurs. Gunn gets the drop on Kriley and sends him packing, too. Basically, just acts like himself and beats up all the white people he can get his hands on. Every time it was shown after that, I would watch it just to see if they caught their mistake. She calls him a "modern-day Uncle Tom" because of his pacifist ways. The white police chief was already aware of the facts but refuses to arrest the white bikers.
The Black Six decide to drop their peaceful ways and have a final confrontation with the racist gang, led by Thor Ben Davidson. A final scrawl on the screen warns, "Watch Out Honkys. The very brief action scenes are clumsily staged and shot and the ending is oh so confusing. There is one brief shot of nudity, when Washington catches his ex-girlfriend Rosalind Miles hooking with a white customer. On the plus side, the six leads are given very little dialogue, saving us from wincing in aural pain.
Director Matt Cimber real name: A Unicorn Video Release. While the new title is not misleading, one still has to wonder why it was necessary to change it. The terrorists shoot the father in the back when he tries to escape, killing him, and abuse the mother, turning her into their personal slave they seem to get-off on humiliating white women and rape their black maid, eventually killing her when they are done. The mother causes a diversion which ends in her getting her throat cut with a butcher knife , allowing Anna to escape by foot into the desolate landscape.
She is able to make it to the shack of drunkard Jock screenwriter Howard Connell and they both decide to head back to the farm to get some payback, but their truck breaks down and they are picked-up by American journalist Brad Robert Aberdeen , who drives them to a gas station.
When they get to the farm, the third terrorist riddles Jock with automatic gunfire before Joe kills him with his machine gun. Anna, Joe and Brad then set out to save Peter, who is now traversing the desert by foot with the other two terrorists after the Jeep breaks down. A series of events finds Peter and the last surviving terrorist holed-up in an abandoned building, while gung-ho Joe, pacifist Brad and worried Anna try to figure out how to save Peter.
It all ends with Joe dead, Peter escaping and the last terrorist limping back to his boat and heading back to his homeland, laughing like a hyena and proud of all the death and destruction he and his dead comrades have caused.
Bad sound recording aside the dialogue was recorded live and sounds muzzled, making much of what is being said unintelligible, especially with the thick local accents , BLACK TERRORIST still manages to entertain thanks to some great on-location cinematography and sudden bursts of bloody violence. While the three terrorist seem to have been sent to this farm to "free" their homeland How they planned on doing this is never explained , they are really nothing but rape-happy thugs who get-off on inflicting violence and degradation to their captives and soon they turn on each other, as the injured terrorist is left at the farm by the other two because he will slow them down and the surviving terrorist shoots the second terrorist when he tries to stop him from raping a female whose automobile they have just carjacked.
The paper-thin plot is really only an excuse to show the terrorists killing their hostages, usually by shooting them lots of bloody bullet squibs. And it is full of gory violence, to boot pardon my humor [because the country of Italy is shaped like a boot! The titled weapon, a prototype shotgun that can shoot grenades, explosive shells, tear gas, shells filled with ball bearings and other goodies. After being tempted in using the weapon on a hotshot lawyer that sent him to prison, Tiger decides that he wants to live a quiet life at his hometown in Georgia filmed in Clayton, Georgia.
As he is about to walk away a shot rings out and the buck falls to the ground, seriously wounded, but not dead. Three hillbillies appear and Tiger tells the hicks to finish off the buck it triggers a flashback to when Tiger was a cop. They refuse, laughing while the buck twitches in pain, so Jake finishes it off with the Blastfighter.
Who wants to be left alone. Tom is the bigshot in town, a logging company owner whose sideline is selling animal parts, like the gall bladders of bears and deer antlers, to the local "Chinaman", who uses them as ingrediants for expensive Chinese medical cures.
He has no idea on what she is up to so, the next morning, he drives her to town only to discover that Wally has messed with the brakes, forcing Tiger and Connie to jump out of the car before it skids off the road and explodes, flipping down the side of a mountain.
Tiger has no choice but to stay and rescue his daughter. He and an always-complaining Connie He screams to her, "Where are your balls, Connie?! Tiger and Connie make it home, but instead of grabbing the Blastfighter, Tiger makes some Molotov cocktails, thinning out the posse by setting them on fire.
This is the point when it turns from a revenge action flick into a blood-soaked gore film. Connie is shot in the leg by Wally, forcing Tiger to remove the bullet with his knife he succeeds.
He then has to pull her leg bone apart which is jutting out of the wound so he can apply a splint all of this is shown in close-up. Tom is overhead in a helicopter trying to spot them.
When he does, he tells Wally to remain where he is and then tries to talk some sense to Tiger, telling him if he forgets everything that has happened, he will let them go free. He should have waited because he still has to deal with Tom.
They agree to face each other with only one bullet in each of their weapons of choice a shotgun for Tom and a pistol for Tiger. Of course, Tom being the bad guy, he cheats, but instead of killing him, Tiger shoots him in the knee. The on-location photography also adds a sense of realism to the proceedings. I was also surprised to read, during the closing credits, that no animals were harmed in the making of this film.
All the shots of real-life animal deaths including the buck and a pig were taken from stock documentary footage. This has to be a first because the Italians were not ashamed to show real animals getting killed for "entertainment value", especially their cannibal films. Stuffed with extras including a new interview with Lamberto Bava, who reveals that Producer Luciano Martino sold the film to various countries on the title alone, before any footage was shot.
While that tidbit does get a mention in the film, it is quickly dropped. Bava also says that he spoke English when he made this film, but in the past years, forgot how! Listening to Eastman talk, he comes across as an ungrateful SOB, as he hates most of the films he appeared in and dislikes most of the people he worked with.
Also on the disc are new interviews with Michael Sipkow Who nows sells a protective type of glass called "miron". You can go to his website, www. Sopkiw relates a funny story about meeting Quentin Tarantino at the video store he worked at before he became famous.
Tarantino recognized Sopkiw right away and told him that this film was one of his favorites. The store manager asks them to leave and a martial arts fight breaks out, which ends with the manager smacking his head against a counter and dying. Another martial arts fight breaks out and the four drunks prove to be too much for Edward although he puts up a pretty good fight and Diane. While there are plentiful well-staged martial arts fights and stunts One ends with Steve tying Walter to the railroad tracks and the MetroRail runs him over [offscreen] , they are ruined by the over-amped sound effects and music tracks, not to mention the laughable acting talents of Sean Donahue and Christine Landson, who both seem to be reading their dialogue off of cue cards.
Only you can make that decision. CAGE - Must-see viewing for all fans of action cinema, but not for the reasons you might expect. Twenty years pass and Scott is still looking out for Billy, acting as his older brother, father, mother and, most of all, best friend, but times are tough and Scott has to figure out a way they can both make some money to survive.
Since Tony also owes crime kingpin Mr. When a steadfast Scott still refuses to let Billy fight he really is about the best friend anyone could ever hope to have , Tony and Mario kidnap Billy and begin training him to fight, under the ruse that he is helping Scott raise money to rebuild the bar.
When the police refuse to help Scott find Billy, he sets out on his own, first by killing Diablo and Mono who suffers a fitting death by fire while begging Scott to kill him, which he refuses to do! Play a retard, dress in drag or die of a terminal disease and you are guaranteed to get a nomination. Reb Brown also registers as Scott. His protective friendship with Billy is quite touching. Both Billy and Mario lack the intelligence or will to survive on their own, but the way they are treated by their prospective guardians is like apples and oranges.
The scene where Mario sympathizes with Billy while he is being beaten to a pulp by one fighter played by Matthias Hues is heartfelt and tugs at your emotions, as is their scene in the locker room where Mario pleads with Billy to fight one more time to save both of their lives.
Call me an old softy, but CAGE is that rare action film that pulls at your heartstrings while beating your body to a bloody pulp. CAGE II - Awful sequel to the surprisingly affecting CAGE that, while it reunites the main cast, director and screenwriter, misses the mark completely on what made the original film so successful: Lou Ferrigno returns as hulking simpleton Billy, who was rendered retarded during the Vietnam War by getting shot in the head while saving Scott Reb Brown from an enemy ambush.
As Part II opens, Scott and Billy are attacked in a grocery store by Chin James Lew and his gang, who leave Scott for dead and kidnap Billy after shooting a tranquilizer dart into his stomach. Billy becomes the star attraction of the Cage Cable Network, a brutal fighting corporation which now, unlike the first film, seems perfectly legal owned by Tin Lum Yin James Shigata , the chief bad guy in Part 1, who was supposedly crushed to death by Billy in the finale, but survived and now must wear a full body brace and walk with a cane.
Tin Lum Yin keeps Billy in line by giving him daily "vitamin injections", which are actually genetically enhanced steroids that turn Billy into a violent, no-mercy cage fighter, a degree turn from his normal, docile retarded self. Billy begins to go through withdrawal symptoms from the lack of injections, which Mi Lo helps him get through with the use of acupuncture.
Wo Gerald Okamura want Billy to go back to taking the injections and when Billy refuses after finding out that Yin "purchased" Mi Lo in Hong Kong when she was twelve years-old and used her as a whore , Yin stages one final tournament before he leaves the city with millions of dollars in gambling bets. When Yin shoots Mi Lo in the back, Billy goes after him, but the severely disappointing finale finds Billy shot three times and Yin escaping.
CHALLENGE - You have to love a film that puts a disclaimer at the beginning of the film saying that they purposely made a film with no nudity, sexuality or bad language so that it is family-friendly. Guthrie screenwriter William T. The assassins beat the snot out of Challenge, steal the first set of documents and leave Challenge bleeding but not dead and unconscious in a motel parking lot. One-by-one, Challenge kills those responsible one involves a sharpened belt buckle!
Guthrie for a final showdown. I think what makes this different from most revenge flicks is that Challenge gets revenge without actually killing anyone. They basically kill themselves, but not without a little push from Challenge. One crashes his car and it explodes trying to get away from Challenge. Another flies his plane into a forest after running out of fuel. Still another crashes through a window and falls to his death after missing a flying kick aimed at Challenge. Guthrie drops dead of a heart attack running away from Challenge who fires his shotgun into the air, basically scaring Guthrie to death.
Earl Owensby this is his first film, both as actor and producer , who was never accused of being a good actor, made a career of churning out these little regional actioners from his Shelby, North Carolina production facility and they were very popular in the South. Truth be told, I would rather see nudity.
Director Martin Beck handles the action rather proficiently, offering us a long car chase through the back streets of Shelby, a prop plane chase and some other nice set pieces. Ignore the info on IMDB that says that they are both the same film they even mix and match the credits as it is just plain wrong. Other Owensby films include: The diamond thieves want their booty back, as does the mob boss they stole them from.
Zach and Chance join forces when one of the thieves tries to kill Zach and they try to discover who actually has possession of the diamonds. Toss in numerous gun fights, car chases and dialogue like. The fact that it took two people to direct this, Charles T. Kanganis who also acts in this using the name "Charlie Ganis" and Addison Randall who also co-wrote the script and has a role as a jerkoff cop who gets a bullet in his brainpan , is an early indicator that this film is in trouble.
The action scenes are lame, the fight scenes badly staged and the acting is pretty poor. He previously played the same character in L. HEAT , L. He wears the same expression on his face in all his roles. How he keeps getting work is beyond me. For PM Entertainment completists only. My friend William Wilson keeps sending me these Dan Haggerty disasters because he knows that I have no choice but to review them.
William Wilson is a bastard who should have other people start his car from now on. Payback is a bitch. A PM Entertainment Release. With the help of his old Commanding Officer, Roger was able to avoid being killed by changing his identity and living in anonymity.
Nothing lasts forever, though, as Roger now finds himself paying back his old C. When Rafael Cesar Olmo , the leader of the freedom fighters, is captured and tortured by Garcia and his minions, Roger, Gabriel and a select few freedom fighters attempt to rescue him, even though the American government has called off the assassination and wants Roger to return to the States.
Even though they manage to rescue Rafael, the rescue attempt turns out to be a trap and only Roger, Gabriel and Rafael escape with their lives. When the real traitor tips his hand, Roger kills him, but soon finds out that his entire mission was a setup conducted by Garcia to flush out the freedom fighters and kill them. Roger still has a trick or two up his sleeve and Garcia pays for his treachery with his life. This is nowhere near as good or nihilistic as the first film. Equally annoying are the dubbed voices used for both Brett Clark and Jeff Moldovan, who both have real voices that are distinct and identifiable.
The finale is especially frustrating, as we expect Roger to get even with his Commanding Officer when he returns to the States. Instead, he returns to Miami where the entire film was lensed , gets into a limousine with his C. What a crock of shit. Fabrizio DeAngelis, the director of the first film, was the Producer here. This film never had a legitimate U.
When Carmine Longo Mike Lane, returning from the first film is released from prison after a lengthy stay, he goes after the people who put him there. Longo becomes a loose cannon, much to the dismay of local crime lord Voce Joe Donte , who is losing too many of his men who are assisting Longo in fulfilling his revenge.
Longo puts pressure on mob lawyer Kozlo Frank Sinatra Jr. This film contains a cast that is full of B-movie staples. He spends most of his time running around firing weapons, so acting takes a back seat here.
Those wily bastards have the cast credits and plot correct on the DVD sleeve, they just put the wrong film on the DVD. The only way you are going to see this film in any form in the U. The prologue shows a French army convoy being ambushed by the Vietcong in They kill all the French soldiers and steal millions of dollars in art, important documents and diamonds that the convoy was transporting.
Flash-forward fifteen years and a group of American commandos are raiding a secret underground tunnel that is the headquarters for VC General Diap Ken Watanabe. After killing all the VC in the tunnel and capturing General Diap, the leader of the commandos, Captain Brady Michael James , calls for a pick-up but, for reasons unknown until much later, some of the squad members point their weapons at Captain Brady. Brady is brought to court martial, but is given five days to bring General Diap back to prove his innocence.
She manages to walk through the compound unnoticed and leads Brady right to Diap, where he takes him prisoner for a second time. As they are leaving the compound, a welcoming committee is waiting and they must fight their way out. Could it be the mysterious General McMoreland Gordon Mitchell , who may know more than he is letting on? A squad of French soldiers also want Diap because they think he knows the location of the treasure stolen fifteen years earlier.
Diap keeps bribing the soldiers with diamonds to let him escape and Brady must then decide whether to kill Diap or bring him back for the trial. If you ask me, the only good gook is a dead gook. The dialogue consists of macho lines, like this exchange between Brady and Terryl: Yo u stupid asshole! When three soldiers in gas masks to hide their identities brutally gun down an American officer and his lady friend i.
When they question Col. When an assassin unsuccessfully tries to kill Col. He makes Bruce Lee look like a pussy! When Hawk is called away to visit one of his sick children What? Morgan is forced to kill the assassin before he can interrogate him, so he and Hawk who suddenly reappears confront Col.
Kasler, who finally spills the beans. It seems Kasler, the dead officer from the beginning of the film and another officer witnessed Major Shooman and the Cobra Force slaughter an entire village of innocent Vietnamese men, women and children, but the U. As Morgan and Hawk race to protect the third officer, they will soon discover that the difference between the good guys and the bad guys is just the width of a hair. Someone is lying to them in a big way and it could cost them their lives.
Brent Huff who sports a distracting dangly earring in his left ear is simply awful here. His idea of "acting" is to scream out all his lines it becomes unintentionally funny after a while and Max Laurel, who was so memorable as ZUMA , is dubbed by someone with a very high-pitched voice, making his character seem more like a parody than a real person.
Laurel also disappears mysteriously several times throughout the film. Frank is killed He is shot in the leg and then point-blank in the head. His wife Julie Joan Becherich is kidnapped and murdered before his eyes after he turns over a briefcase he picked up in San Francisco. The Colonel tells J. He kills three guys in a strip bar when they refuse to answer his questions "Wrong answer, dude!
The fascists send a female assassin named Angel Amy Sachel to dispose of J. To say anymore would spoil the final surprise. Why is everyone in this film so butt-ugly? Perm-headed Joey Johnson is simply indescribable as J. People appear and disappear for no rhyme or reason other than to be victims of J. It really is one of the looniest and out-of-left-field conclusions that I have witnessed in quite a while.
Oh, what fun you are going to have if you are lucky enough to get your hands on a copy of this! The city of Portland should use this film as a tourist attraction "Come to Portland. Chances are you are better-looking than us! Then come visit one of our many fine parks! Not available on DVD. In the opening, police detective Zeus director George Pan-Andreas and his partner get into a shootout with a drug gang the guns sound like cap pistols and you can see the wadding come out of the barrels and, when some of the gang come popping out of garbage cans!
Zeus is kicked off the force and is set to go on trial for killing the two cops He complains to his Police Chief, defending his reputation as a crime fighter: Morrell begs Zeus to come back Zeus says, "How can I come back now?
You broke my heart! Zeus finally relents and rescues a young girl and she is able to pick out one of the killers by his mug shot. When the little girl is killed by the crime organization, Zeus gathers his Vietnam buddies together both of them to exact some vengeance, but first they need some strict military training to get into shape this sequence is a real howler, as Zeus and his comrades go through their training with a no-nonsense drill sargeant while having flashbacks of their time as P.
Zeus begins to kill all the bad guys one-by-one including one memorable death with a switchblade hidden in his sleeve until he meets the female head of the organization, who tries to seduce Zeus, but ends up dead by one of her own devices. The film is very bloody in spots, including a nasty throat slashing the effects are surprisingly well done and wait until you get to the surreal ending involving Zeus and the President. I was laughing so hard I nearly pissed myself! This is cheese of the highest order and essential to every badfilm fan.
William agrees to take her to visit the General at his country home after she and William are attacked leaving a casino, where Helen proves quite adept in the martial arts and we learn that the General has strange Macumba supernatural powers, like the ability to shoot electricity from his fingertips.
William and the General are business partners in an illegal drug cartel the General burned down all the drug farms not only to get the U. William and Helen are then taken prisoner along with some Contra rebels and the General makes them all work in the mines as slaves at the dreaded "Gates of Paradise", a secret underground location where something unknown and evil is going on.
This involves Contra women, including Myra, infiltrating the camp as prostitutes and, while the guards are getting their rocks off, David, William and the Contra fighters sneak in. When Helen is taken prisoner and tortured by the General and Astaroth, William reveals that he is actually a U. Never legitimately released on home video in the U. The film opens with the freedom fighters attacking a Dutch military base lots of explosion and people on both sides getting riddled with bullets , only to have the Dutch capture the leader of the freedom fighters, who bites his own tongue off when he is questioned and gets shot for not cooperating.
Morale is also at an all-time low Sgt. Hassim kicks the shit out of one of his comrades when the man threatens to report another soldier getting cozy with a female nurse , so when Sgt. Hassim is offered a mission to investigate a burned-out village, he grabs the rest of his team to investigate. It turns out to be a trap set-up by the Dutch and that crazy Dutch Captain. Low on ammunition, the Daredevil Commandos nevertheless win the battle using sheer brute strength One of the Daredevils is killed, though , which severely pisses-off the Dutch Captain, who steps-up the brutality World view be damned!
The Dutch are aware that the freedom fighters are running low on weapons, ammunition and food, so they plan on one final big-scale attack to wipe them off the face of the Earth. At their huge compound where the Dutch store a large cache of weapons, ammunition and food. It seems the only way to truly surprise the Dutch at the compound is to climb down a huge vertical cliff, so Sgt.
Hassim and his men train hard for the mission. Will this be the mission that will finally make the Dutch exit Indonesia for good? The direction, by E. Bakker who has no other film credits that I can find and may be a pseudonym , is rather flat and uninvolving, and he seems more interested in patriotic speeches rather than action through the first two-thirds of the film at one point, just before a battle, the Daredevil Commandos break out into a patriotic song that begins with "Indonesia, you are my country Even the climatic rock avalanche is filmed for minimal impact.
A rare loser from Producer Gope T. Samtani and Rapi Films. Alexander and Gino Makasutji. Never legitimately available on home video in the U.
The film opens with a man in a big black hat, black gloves a staple of giallo films and carrying a cane with a spring-loaded blade killing a man in Genoa, Italy, one of his thugs finding a key taped to his torso. Cobra jumps at the chance since Kadinsky was the person who got him fired. Brenda and Cobra start a love affair, but can she be trusted?
The biggest problem Cobra runs up against is that everyone he talks to is deathly afraid to talk about Kadinsky. When Papasian tells Cobra that Kadinsky is dead, we must figure out if he really is.
The usually dependable Franco Nero looks to be sleepwalking through his role as Cobra. In the very next scene, it looks as if he has gotten over it.
Castellari has certainly done much better, including the post-apocalypse films Here are some of the few positive points: When Lola gets into a fight with Cobra in an empty disco she uses martial arts moves to kick the crap out of him! There are also a couple of deaths that are memorable. Cobra shoots a drum of gasoline, sending the assassin high into the air.
Unfortunately, both deaths are bloodless. We hear the gun go off and then there is a jump edit where Cobra enters an elevator. All in all, this is a very minor film in a genre of Italian movies that are usually violent and exciting. Also starring Massimo Vanni a. Nobody tells me what to do! There are far more entertaining Italian crime films out there. Not Rated , but no nudity and very little blood. The only problem is, sadistic crooks Al John Morghen and Kurt Vincent Conte have caught on to their scam and they kill Harry by drowning him in a bathtub before he is able to tell them where he has hidden the money.
Phoenix cop George Ryan Bo Svenson is called to the scene of the crime and catches Al and Kurt ransacking the place, which leads to a pretty good car chase lots of crashes and stunts and a shootout on the rooftop of a building, where George gets shot several times in the chest. Luckily, he was weraring a bulletproof vest. When George gets too close to the truth, Al and Kurt ambush him on a lonely desert road, causing him to crash his car, but Lou rescues him with his helicopter and chase the bad guys again.
The bad guys then kidnap Kathy and take her away in a helicopter, where she takes them to an abandoned ranch where the money is hidden. Sometimes crime does pay. This Italian production, filmed on location in Las Vegas, Nevada and Phoenix, Arizona is a pretty good comedy action film and Bo Svenson and Fred Williamson look like they are having a ball, even if some of the dialogue is clunky.
They first appeared together in director Enzo. Set during the Vietnam era, the story revolves around a young black man an excellent Larenz Tate and his struggles to find a way to support his pregnant girlfriend after graduating high school. He joins the Marines because he wants to fight for his country, but he soon learns that the war is not the place to escape reality.
After completing his tour of duty, he returns home to the Bronx. Unable to find a good job, he and his buddies plan an armored car robbery, hoping to collect a few hundred thousand dollars of old untraceable money that the government plans to burn. But things go terribly wrong. This may sound like a generic plot, but the Hughes Brothers pull it off with a sense of flair and urgency. In this film it is downright brutal. During the war scenes, heads are chopped off, a soldier has his stomach slit open and his dismembered penis shoved in his mouth and, in one unbelievable scene, a soldier steps on a land mine and is blown to bits.
The violence at home is no less gruesome. People are shot in the head, crushed by moving cars and riddled with bullets. Even though it is gory, the violence is not the driving force behind this film.
The story is filled with interesting characters and, for once, white people are not portrayed as raving bigots. This took guts from a black filmmaking team. This South Africa-lensed boxing actioner stars Bobick as Billyboy Lamont, a burly dock worker and university student who wants to be a professional boxer like his father, Don screenwriter Willie Von Rensburg , but dear old Pop discourages him from doing so, telling him, "This, my boy, is what fifteen years of fighting and being champ has got me: When Pop catches Billyboy at the gym instead of studying at the university, he decides to teach him a lesson and challenges Billyboy to a boxing match in the ring.
Meanwhile, the short-statured Mike catches the eye of barmaid Janet Barbara Salberg at a disco and accidentally gets her fired from her job. Mike gets Janet a job as a maid at the Bendell household, but Josephine tells him to keep his hands off of her now that she is the hired help.
Josephine has been holding that grudge for many, many years and after marrying a millionaire and giving birth to the dwarf-like Mike did I mention she despises him and treats him like shit?
Terry has grown up to be a first class lout and ends up screwing Janet even though he knows that Mike has feelings for her When Josephine tells Terry that Janet is "beneath him", he replies coldly, "I know.
He fights a series of boxers and works his way up the ranks until, yes, you guessed it, he becomes the number one contender against Terry. Which one of these "brothers from different mothers" will turn out to be champ? Boxing may be an art form, but so is acting.
It is like he just picked up a carton of eggs at the store and found one of them broken! It has plenty of flesh but very little nudity. The few action scenes are haphazardly staged and shot. Anna belongs to the evil Mr. Caine Anthony Caruso , a white slave trader. Frank cleans her up and promises to marry her after his next and last six month stint at sea.
He plans on buying an avacado farm! While Frank is out at sea, Mr. Caine kidnaps Anna, rehooks her on drugs and makes her re-establish herself as a whore. When Frank returns to land and cannot locate Anna, he enlists the aide of his seaman buddy Chris Mitchum and a prostitute Lisa Loring to help him track her down.
When they finally locate Anna, she is walking the streets, strung-out and looking for Johns she offers to take Frank and Chris on for fifty bucks! In a cop-out ending, all the good guys have a happy ending. He is constantly getting roughed up by Frank and the goons.
The bad guys in this film are a criminal organization known as "The Golden Cats". Rogers Paul Eeckmann , witnesses the kidnapping and gives chase in his sporty convertible.

One of the managers, pulled the Player 1 away from the coach and walked towards the field exit. Parent of Player 1 made her way down the stands, out the gate and into the infield where she was able to make her way to the sideline and began an altercation with the coach.

Firefighters and employees worked together to get the fire controlled. There were approximately 25 fire departments, including Pickett County, and other various agencies from all over the Upper Cumberland that responded to the horrendous fire that raged through the building. Shortly after firefighters began surrounding the fire, there was a mandatory evacuation for the Livingston Square area and traffic was backed up and detoured Approximately firefighters worked non-stop through drizzling rain and high winds on into the night to contain the fire and keep it from reaching nearby buildings.

The US Corridor Sale started in The four day sale always starts on the first Thursday in August making dates for the 30th annual sale to be August The sale is very popular, and visitors from several foreign countries have attended.
The original intent of the sale was to prove the back roads have something to offer, and that the interstate system was not the only mode for travel. County officials put together a list of attractions along the route in Kentucky and Tennessee. There are over three hundred attractions along the route to provide enjoyment for the family.
Whether it is majestic hills, beautiful scenery, river boats, railroads, toe tapping music, arts, crafts, horses, fishing, hiking, bits of Civil War or Indian History, there are many opportunities to enjoy the beauty and culture of the land along the Sale Route.

Visitors should honor requests of "No Parking" or "No Trespassing" posted by families not participating in the sale--cars can leave deep tire ruts on a soft lawn. Traffic congestion is part of the annual phenomenon to be endured, but the chance of finding a treasure lures them on.
Many visitors plan their vacations around the sale event, with some traveling the entire miles. Others may opt to spend their time in a selected area, and venture off the beaten path to discover the history and charm of the land.
Whatever the mode of travel you may choose, please do expect plenty of traffic. The pace may slow to that of snarled rush hour traffic. Do expect sudden stops to occur without warning, and drive carefully and defensively. Enjoy the spot wherever you are, because down the road a few miles may be a space where no vendors are set up and the traffic will move along as usual. You are here to enjoy the sale and most of the other vehicles are too.

Bed and Breakfast type lodgings do a brisk business during this sale, with most any type of overnight lodging being filled each night. Southern hospitality has led to couples being taken into private homes because nothing else was available.
Some visitors to the sale try to find lodging when and where needed. Some find cancellations, some go up to fifty miles, to the right or left of the sale route, to spend the night. Some even sleep in their car. However, these are considered small inconveniences in light of the excitement of finding the deal of the day and anticipation of a big shopping spree. A few dislike the snarled traffic associated with the sale, but all must admit, the sale is good for the economy along the corridor route.
Locals sell their crafts, accommodations are filled, restaurants are crowded, and those renting vendor spaces also add to the local economy.
