UNCLE PETE PULLS A HOUDINI (ALMOST)
Forget all those so-called edgy TV cop shows with all the letters – you know, NCI, SUV, SIC, EIEIO – that the networks all rave about. Join UNCLE PETE this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN for a real gritty police action drama from 1976 – Cop In Blue Jeans (aka – Squadra Antiscippo). We head across the big pond for this Bruno Corbucci directed thriller starring Tomas Milian as Nico Giraldi, a tough, no-nonsense, earthy undercover cop who makes his own rules as he goes along and always gets the job done. Nico is investigating a well-organized group of thieves swiping everything from purses to jewelry to motorcycles. But things really start to heat up when one of the gang snatches a briefcase containing 4 billion lira (I think that’s about 800 quinzillion Euros or about a buck-eighty American) and belonging to big time mobster Norman Shelley (played by Dark Vault fave Jack Palance).
And it’s another of our new remixed, remastered, re-upholstered episodes with bigger color, higher sound and all that good stuff!
UNCLE PETE is back in the DARK VAULT this week, returning triumphant from his ’round the world bowling tour. He, and especially his bowling ball, are a bit the worse for wear after their little delay in the German Airport, but that won’t stop him from channeling his inner street-wise tough guy cop. But he might be better off channeling Houdini when he has a bit of trouble with a set of official handcuffs.
So join UNCLE PETE for Cop In Blue Jeans this Saturday, July 6, 2013 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4. It’s our Independence Day Weekend presentation on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!
