| 70's Drive In Junk But Seeing Blake Again Is Nice
Saw this in 1978 in Houston at The McClendon Triple Drive In on South Main as "Bummer". I was an amateur boxing champion at the time and this was the filler for "Massacre At Central High". I was a big Robert Blake fan and was disappointed as I thought this was going to be another "Rocky" which was the reason this film was re-released to Drive Ins to try and piggyback on the Oscar winner to make a few bucks. Blake tries and is his usual cool self, but the fight scenes are not well staged and it is very hoaky looking. Completely hack job in terms of editing - just a piece of Italian junk an amateur could do a better job of making. Still, the 70's memories are nostalgic and it is fun to see the old cars again and what the heck, if you are home sick from work like I am, give it an hour and 14 minutes of your time. I do miss ol' Blake after watching this as he gave so many people a lot of joy on television.
