THE CANDY TANGERINE MAN (1975 U.S.) D/P: "MATT CIMBER" (MATTEO OTTAVIANO) W: GEORGE THEAKOS
When will this blaxploitation classic get the cult reputation it so richly deserves? John Daniels is a suburban businessman by day who becomes tough, garish pimp "The Black Baron" by night. Surrealy bad acting from the cast, (apparently) real hookers (with their breasts cut off) and more nasty violence rules the day as the Baron battles Italian gangsters. He also drives around in a candy-coloured Rolls Royce with a set of machine guns behind the headlights. Films don't get much more fun than this, i just wish i could have seen it in a theatre. With Marilyn Joi and George "Buck" Flower. Theakos also wrote LADY COCOA and THE BLACK SIX for Ottaviano (a one-time Jayne Mansfield husband).
