FEAR IS THE KEY
1972, Paramount, 103 min, USA, Dir: Michael Tuchner

Adapted from Alistair MacLean’s novel, this British revenge thriller stars Barry Newman as a tough guy who isn’t quite what he seems, with a great Roy Budd soundtrack, a car chase to rival that of BULLITT and a wonderful closing twist to sweeten the deal. Keep an eye out for Ben Kingsley in his feature debut!


VANISHING POINT
1971, 20th Century Fox, 97 min, USA, Dir: Richard Sarafian

Ex-stock car driver and uncompromising loner, Kowalski (Barry Newman) drives a turbo-charged white Dodge Challenger into psychedelicized oblivion, pursued by an army of cops and naked motorcyclists. The great Cleavon Little co-stars as "Super Soul," blind disc jockey and visionary madman of the airwaves. Fasten your seatbelts. With Severn Darden, Dean Jagger and Paul Koslo.
