3 Men To Kill Add to Shopping Cart
1977
Alain Delon, Dalila Di Lazzaro
Here's another excellent French thriller starring Alain Delon. The real treat however is his co-
star, Dalila Di Lazzaro who plays his girlfriend and has several topless scenes. Delon innocently
helps a car accident victim without realizing the man was shot. The two men who killed him are
now after Delon and make his life a living hell as they kill off all those he comes in contact
with. If you want to know who came up with the bullet through the keyhole shot Argento used
in OPERA, well Jacques Deray did it here 10 years earlier. A tale of paranoia, mixed with sex
and violence.

7 Hours Of Violence Add to Shopping Cart
Michele Massimo Tarantini 1977
George Hilton, Rosemary Dexter
George Hilton is a former hitman who's blackmailed into performing one last job. It doesn't go
well and he ends up hiding out at a young woman's (Rosemarie Dexter) place. Not only are the
police looking for him, but a group of Chinese killers are too (this leads to Hilton and George
Wang getting into a kungfu fight that was obviously influenced by the HK films of that time).
Hilton becomes more desperate as all sides close in on him. An offbeat thriller with many
changes of direction along the way. Hilton plays a real SOB in this one which makes for a nice
change of pace. Directed by Michele Massimo Tarantini.

A Man to Respect Add to Shopping Cart
Michele Lupo 1973
Kirk Douglas, Giuliano Gemma, Florinda Bolkan
This was released here as THE MASTER TOUCH and was cut. This version restores 13 minutes
to the film's running time. Kirk Douglas is an ex-con whose old boss wants him to pull off a
million dollar robbery. He teams up with an acrobat (Giuliano Gemma) to help him pull off the
job. Too bad he falls for Douglas' wife (Florinda Balkan) and together plan to double cross the
old guy. Bad mistake as Kirk will not be denied his revenge. The last 40 minutes are virtually
free of dialogue giving Ennio Morricone to go nuts with his music

Black Magic Add to Shopping Cart
Enzo Castellari 1991
Bud Spencer, Philip Michael Thomas
Bud Spencer returns as Detective Extralarge (the only gumshoe who makes Cannon look like
the Thin Man!). This one has a supernatural bent as Dionne Warwick (I guess she was in
between Psychic Network gigs) stars as a voodoo priestess. A girl commits suicide, repeatedly
stabbing herself in front of her boyfriend. Was she under the control of a cult or did he really
kill her? Big Bud is hired to find out.

Blue Eyed Bandit Add to Shopping Cart
1977
Franco Nero, Dalila Di Lazzaro
Franco Nero stars as a old man (actually he's not, he uses make-up to fool his fellow co-
workers) who plans on robbing his workplace but the plot is discovered by a fellow worker
(Dalila Di Lazzaro) which certainly complicates things. A great jazz score by Ennio Morricone

Borsalino Add to Shopping Cart
1971
Alain Delon, Jean Paul Belmondo
Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo star as two rival gangsters during the thirties who decide
to become partners and work their way up the criminal ladder. Much like a violent, classic
Warner Brothers gangster flick, Delon and Belmondo have rarely been better. Here's a bit of
trivia, Porno star Rocco Sieffredi took his name from the Delon's character in this film! $

Borsalino And Co. Add to Shopping Cart
Jacques Deray 1975
Alain Delon, Catherine Rouvert
One of the very best French gangster films ever!! This is the sequel to BORSALINO (which if
you haven't seen you really should as it stars Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo) and this
time around Rocco (Delon) is out for revenge. His partner was killed in the previous film and
the mobster who gave the order is now running all the crime in France. Delon slowly gathers
his forces for an all out war!! This is a very violent and somber film (not like the first one) and
really delivers. Directed by Jacque Deray and co-starring Catherine Rouvet.

Incredibly violent detective film by Robert Clouse featuring Rod Taylor as Travis McGee, based

Vince (Giorgio Ardisson) meets Wally, an old friend from high school, and they decide to hang
out together at a hotel in Rome a few days later. Vince shows up but Wally has disappeared
and the more Vince searches for Wally, the his life is in danger. This is sixties mixture of a Spy

need be). Three of the worst criminals alive escape from prison and begin an unbelievable
crime spree involving robbery, kidnapping and rape. When they run over the young daughter

down). Then, when he discovers the Police Commissioner was murdered, he really goes off the
deep end! He teams up with an underworld figure (Tomas Milian) and together they track down
the ones responsible. Stelvio Massi directs and Katia Christine plays the love interest.
