WHO’S THE CRIME BOSS!
Celebrate Telly Savalas’ birthday (January 21) and his death day (January 22) with THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN this week as UNCLE PETE uncovers the 1972 Italian Mob Thriller – Crime Boss. It stars Telly Savalas as Don Vincenzo, the tough, ruthless, cultured head of The Family, and Antonio Sabato as Antonio Mancuso, a somewhat successful hood from Sicily with ambitions of criming it up in the big time. Antonio makes the trek from Sicily to mainland Italy where he teams up with his cousin Nicola (Giuliano Persico), a gainfully employed small time pimp. Antonio makes a big enough splash that he gets to meet the Don and is given a chance in the organization as an entry-level member. But Antonio has his sights set on Don Vincenzo’s job and his daughter Monica (Paolo Tedesco). Will Telly stand for this? Find out this week in the DARK VAULT! From director Alberto DeMartino with a killer score from Francesco DeNasi, it’s Crime Boss.
Back at the vault, UNCLE PETE and El Vato have a discussion about the lineages and fine points of the world of crime. And UNCLE PETE channels Kojak with an eyeball pop while finding time to bring you a load of trailers and Popeye meeting with some ghosts and stuff in 1954’s Fright To The Finish.
So grab your spinach and your Tootsie Roll pops and join UNCLE PETE this Saturday, January 23, 2016 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 in Binghamton, channel 17 in Montrose/Sayre, and channel 99 in Hornell/Corning/Elmira with replays at midnight and 2AM. Who loves ya Telly? We Do!!! It’s Crime Boss, the feature presentation on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!
