INTERPLAY / THE CORPORATE QUEEN


January, 1971 double-feature at the Cinema Art in Troy. INTERPLAY (70) was directed by Albert T. Viola, a year before he made PREACHERMAN. THE CORPORATE QUEEN (69) was an Amero Brothers film with Janet Banzet. Neither film seems to have surfaced for home video. I like how WEST SIDE STORY was the matinee screening.
