1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS
1990: I GUERRIERI DEL BRONX
1982, Blue Underground, 89 min, Italy, Dir: Enzo G. Castellari

From the director of the original INGLORIOUS BASTARDS and LAST SHARK and the writer of ZOMBIE comes this explosive Italian post-nuke. Anne, heiress to a weapon's manufacturer, runs away to the war zone of the Bronx to avoid inheriting her questionable family business. She must navigate the wasteland with Trash, a gang leader of the Riders, as rival gangs and bounty hunters seek to capture her. Mixing elements from both ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and THE WARRIORS, BRONX WARRIORS is an action-packed whirlwind of insanity.


KING CREOLE
1958, Paramount, 116 min, Dir: Michael Curtiz

Director Michael Curtiz (CASABLANCA) directs yet one more of The King’s better films. Although the studio and The Colonel toned things down a bit, this adaptation of Harold Robbins’ bestseller A Stone For Danny Fisher remains surprisingly good. Young New Orleans punk and high school dropout Danny (Elvis) quits his busboy job and wrangles his way into performing a song in front of a club’s duly-stunned patrons. Before long, he is in demand and being pressured by mobster club owner Maxie Fields (Walter Matthau) to sign an exclusive contract. Elvis once again receives grand support from such pros as Carolyn Jones, Dolores Hart (his leading lady in LOVING YOU and a future real-life nun!), Dean Jagger, Vic Morrow and Paul Stewart. Songs include the title ditty as well as "Hard Headed Woman," "Trouble" and more!
