    Joe (1970) on DVD

    This sleeper hit film of the early 1970s was re released on DVD this week. The previous DVD is out of print. I grabbed this as soon as I saw it. It's about a square ad executive (Dennis Patrick) who kills the drug dealer boyfriend of his junkie daughter (Susan Sarandon, her film debut). He strikes up a friendship with a bigoted factory worker (Peter Boyle) and the two decide to infiltrate the hippie world of lower East Side of New York. This is a gritty, sometimes funny look at hippie and drug culture. Peter Boyle is excellent as the loudmouth working stiff being both funny and scary at the same time. The music is good too, an excellent song sung by Jerry Butler is played over the credits and there is a hilarious country tune dedicated to the Joe character. The film is not for everyone, if you are offended by foul language, racial slurs, nudity, drugs or violence, you should stay away. If anyone saw this or bought the DVD, I would like to hear your opinions.

    Davison, Bruce
  11. The most famous vampire hunter in literary and film history has been portrayed by many great actors on film. Who is your favorite? Some of the actors who have played him: Edward Van Sloan in Dracula (1931) Peter Cushing in Horror Of Dracula (1958) and many others through the 1970s Laurence Olivier in Dracula (1979) Anthony Hopkins in Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992) Hugh Jackman in Van Helsing (2004) Feel free to add any others. My favorite would have to be Peter Cushing. He was so determined and tough that he practically made Dracula look like an underdog. No one could pound in a stake with more gusto than him.

    Ileana Douglas is Melvyn Douglas' Granddaughter?!!?

    I love that one also. The whole movie was hilarious, but some of the biggest laughs happened in the art class scenes. Remember the Mirror, Father, Mirror scene?
