BOWLING + HANDCUFFS = ACTION!!!
Those boring, generic big hit cop shows with all the letters – you know, NCI, SUV, SIC, EIEIO – in the words of Vitobot – “They ain’t no good!”. Join UNCLE PETE this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN for some real down to earth cop action with the 1976 feature Cop In Blue Jeans (aka – Squadra Antiscippo). It’s off to the land of vino and salami (UNCLE PETE’s favorite breakfast) for this Bruno Corbucci directed thriller starring Tomas Milian as Nico Giraldi, a tough, no-nonsense, 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 from mob big-wig Norman Shelley (played by Dark Vault fave Jack Palance) that contains 4 billion lira (I think that’s about a buck-eighty American). 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 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 despite a little problem with a set of official handcuffs (and a flashback to that weekend in Altoona). And no, that’s not the Pope’s hat he’s wearing this week.
So join UNCLE PETE for Cop In Blue Jeans this Saturday, September 19, 201 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 (Binghamton), channel 17 (Montrose/Sayre), and channel 99 (Elmira/Corning/Hornell) and remember our replays at midnight and 2AM. It’s cops bowling and fun on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!
