ACROSS 110TH STREET (1972 U.S.) D: BARRY SHEAR W: LUTHER DAVIS P: RALPH SERPE/FOUAD SAID
A group of small time criminals in Harlem rip-off some money from Italian mobsters. Anthony Franciosca`s a son of the mob family who goes to Harlem to find out who did it. Anthony Quinn (angry, old fashioned and violent) and Yaphet Kotto (liberal hotshot on his way up) star as the cops on the case. It`s a classic, gritty thriller with plenty of violence and location work like they only made in the 70`s. It`s based on a novel by Wally Ferris. Antonio Fargas is castrated. With Burt Young, Gloria Hendry, George DiCenzo, Evelyn Keyes and Ken Lynch. The excellent soundtrack is by J.J. Johnson with songs by Bobby Womack. Regular TV director Shear and Quinn were Executive Producers.
