THE CHEERLEADERS / FRITZ THE CAT


January, 1974 double-feature at Studio I; not sure where that was. THE CHEERLEADERS (1973) is the delightfully wacky (and pretty damn sexy) softcore comedy. FRITZ THE CAT (1972) is the Ralph Bakshi adaptation of the Crumb character (which he hated).

CHANGE OF HEART, etc.


Another pair of strange triple-bills at the Tri-City Twin, from January, 1970. CHANGE OF HEART is most likely the 1969 Belgian film Le Témoin; THE HELLFIGHTERS (1968) was the John Wayne oil well firefighter movie; THE LOVE GOD is a 1969 Don Knotts comedy. THE BRIDGE AT REMAGEN (1969) was a WW2 film with George Segal and Robert Vaughn; IF IT'S TUESDAY, IT MUST BE BELGIUM is a mistitling of IF IT'S TUESDAY, THIS MUST BE BELGIUM (1969), with Suzanne Pleshette and Ian McShane; DEATH RIDES A HORSE is of course the Italian western Da uomo a uomo (1967), with Lee Van Cleef and John Phillip Law.

BURY ME AN ANGEL / ANGELS DIE HARD / HELLS ANGELS


March, 1971 triple at the New Forest Drive-in. BURY ME AN ANGEL (1971) is the cheap biker flick featuring a three-person gang, ANGELS DIE HARD (1970) with William Smith is a pretty fun watch, and HELLS ANGELS is probably HELLS ANGELS '69 (69), with Jeremy Slate.
