Conflicted and lets be honest, pretty messed up prodigy Jimmy (Harvey Keitel) juggles a fine line between pure genius and total madness whilst trying to obtain his dream of becoming a concert pianist. Absorbed and completely obsessed with music, he rehearses the classics at home whilst in an almost possessed state, silently singing the notes as he plays. Then when he hits the streets he can’t be without his trusty portable cassette player, music is with Jimmy wherever he goes.
Tagline – He Has The Hands Of An Artist And The Mind Of A Madman.
Trouble Man actor Robert Hooks is just so damn cool that surely he’s playing our hero Mister T as himself. A man brimming with charisma and super fine suits, a beautiful apartment building filled with 70’s chic and the best stereo system equipment that money can buy. His girl Cleo (Paula Kelly) is sweet and loving and will do anything for her man and T repays her with his deep respect and love. Yeah there might be other ladies but hey, Cleo is his girl.
Miscellaneous honey – “When am I gonna see you again baby?”
Mr T – “I’m gonna have to think about that girl!”

Looking like the love child of Leonard Rossiter and Bob Monkhouse, our hero Sammy “Lee” Leeman struts and steps around the streets of sixties London Soho. He’s a fast talking, quick thinking, two bit hustler with his brain on the game two paces before it’s happened, Sammy is a wheeler and a dealer. One minute flush with cash, the next minute, totally skint. Continue reading “The Small World of Sammy Lee (1963) Two Bit Hustler and Strip Club Dancing Girls”
This 35 minute mix is dedicated to that man with the Smith & Wesson Model 29, 44 Magnum, that legend Clint Eastwood. My good old Dad brought me up with a massive love for all things Clint, starting with The Good The Bad and The Ugly. Then I got to meet that man “Dirty Harry” Callahan and the rest is history. Continue reading “Clint Eastwood Funk Attack Plus The Wolfman Naked!!”
I’ve had this soundtrack since I was bout 16 years old. Bobby Womack writes and sings the title anthem Across 110th Street with just so much heart and passion that it’s not surprising it got picked up to feature on future soundtracks later on down the line. Most notably and incredibly well used in QT’s Jackie Brown but it also turned up in American Gangster with Denzel Washington. Continue reading “Across 110th Street (1972) Bobby Womack To Jackie Brown”
George C Scott is my Grandad, well he has always reminded me of him, the look and mannerisms make him a close doppelganger.
