The Cop In Blue Jeans Add to Shopping Cart

Bruno Corbucci 1976

Tomas Milian, Jack Palance widescreen print

This Nico (Tomas Milian) Giraldi crime adventure was released here in a TV censored, pan and

scan version. Here it is, uncut and letterboxed! Giraldi is an unconventional cop who uses tough

methods to capture the scum of Milan. He's after Shelly (Jack Palance), a crooked diplomat

who's also a crime boss, and at the same time Giraldi is trying to uncover a ring of thieves and

fences. While later films in the series became silly, this one retains the hard edge that made

Italian crime films so popular. Directed by Bruno Corbucci.

Destruction Force Add to Shopping Cart

Stelvio Massi 1977

Luc Merenda, Tomas Milian, Katia Christine inItalian with english subs

Letterboxed print. Luc Merenda plays a cop who opens the film by massacring a gang of

kidnappers (I guess in Italy you don't have to read them their rights before you mow them

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.

The Evil Trap Add to Shopping Cart

Yves Boisset 1975

Tomas Milian, Marlene Jobert, Michel lonsdale widescreen in french with english subs

Excellent thriller by director Yves Boisset about a former mental patient (Marlene Jobert) who is

hired as a governess. Before long she becomes the focal point of a kidnap and murder

conspiracy plot masterminded by her supposed benefactor (Michel Lonsdale) who uses a

vicious killer (Tomas Milian) to carry it through. Filled with black humor, this one keeps you on

the edge of your seat throughout

Free Hand For A Tough Cop Add to Shopping Cart

Umberto Lenzi 1976

Tomas Milian, Claudio Cassinelli

Letterboxed print. One of Lenzi's better but more obscure crime films, now available in a wide

screen print. Claudio Cassinelli is a tough cop who goes to prison undercover to recruit a con

(TOmas Milian) to help with a case he's working on. Tough and violent, it features that patented

urban gritty musical score.

Swindle Add to Shopping Cart

Bruno Corbucci 1978

Tomas Milian, David Hemmings, Anna cardini widescreen print

One of Tomas Milian's best entries in the Nico Giraldi series as he plays a Milan undercover cop

who is almost as bad as the people he arrests. David Hemmings co-stars as an Interpol agent

who reluctantly teams up with Milian to catch some international crooks. Anna Cardini co-stars

The Designated Victim Add to Shopping Cart

Maurizio Lucidi 1971

Tomas Milian, Pierre Clementi, Katia Christine

Beautiful widescreen print. This is director Maurizio Lucidi's spirited seventies take on

Hitchcock's STRANGERS ON A TRAIN. Milian plays a commercials director who wants to sell his

business so he can run off with his mistress (Katia Christine who supplies ample nudity). Only

problem is that his shrewish wife says no and she controls the shares. He meets a very rich

and decadent young man (Pierre Clementi who promises to kill his wife if he will kill his brother.

This is a great example of an obscure Italian thriller that is a perfect blend of direction, musical

score (by Luis Bacalov), and locale (the canals of Venice). Highly recommended

Beatrice Cenci Add to Shopping Cart

Lucio Fulci 1969

Tomas Milian, Adrianna Russo

Letterboxed print. One of Fulci's lesser known films (probably because previous copies looked

so bad!), but no doubt it's one of his best. Set in the past, a young girl is so abused by her

father (including beatings and rape) that she hires a young man (Tomas Milian) to help her kill

dear old Dad. It turns out to be an ordeal as the old fucker refuses to go quietly and the entire

family has to pitch in and help. Eventually they are all caught, tortured and put to death. God I

just love a happy ending.

Distant Lights Add to Shopping Cart

1988

Tomas Milian, William Berger inEnglish with greek subs

This is an extremely unsettling film, like an Italian version of INVASION OF THE BODY

SNATCHERS. It centers on the recently widowed Tomas Milian whose son claims he has been

playing with his dead mother. Soon after Milian catches glimpses of her and others who have

recently died. They have no knowledge of their recent past lives and refer to themselves as

lights who come from faraway. William Berger also stars as a father who will do anything to

restore his dead daughter back to life
