Escape with us to a Mediterranean paradise for an evening of suspense and intrigue (which in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN means lots of car chasin’ and shootin’).  Join UNCLE PETE for this week’s feature presentation from 1976 – Death Rage.  It stars Yul Brynner as Peter Marciani, a retired hit man living in New York City (that’s where they go when they retire).  He heads to Naples (the one in Italy) to even the score when he gets word that somebody has croaked his brother back in the Old Country.  While on the trail of his target, he acquires Angelo (Massimo Ranieri),  a hit man in training, as his side kick, and a bit of interested feminine pulchritude (Barbara Bouchet).  But it’s not a simple hit, as he finds out his brother’s death was just a device to lure our assassin hero into a trap.  Not only that, but the Commissario  (Martin Balsam) wants to settle Yul’s hash by means of incarceration.  Directed by Antonio Margheriti, it’s the 1976 thriller – Death Rage (aka – Con La Rabbia Agli Occhi).
     UNCLE PETE’s busy back in THE DARK VAULT with a snack time instructional demonstration of how to make an Antonio Margherita ™ in honor of the evening’s director and an exhibition of some little known merchandising that Yul Brynner endorsed for VITO GOLD ENTERPRISES.  Plus, there’s an informational short entitled The Trouble With Women brought to you by the Aluminum Company Of America from 1959 and a whole passel of shorts and trailers.  And Azul De Vaca waxes poetic (at least he thinks it’s poetry) about the apple of his eye, our feature’s starring female – Barbara Bouchet.

     So join UNCLE PETE this Saturday, January 25, 2014, from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 and our new affiliates – channel 99 in the Elmira/Corning area and channel 17  in and around Sayre, PA.  It’s the newly remastered version of Yul Brynner’s final cinematic appearance (at least this side of the grave) – Death Rage   and it’s the next feature presentation on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!
