Summary: Maybe one for massive lovers of Brian Trenchard-Smith and Grant Page. Everyone else test out Not Quite Hollywood and Man From Hong Kong first.
3For the Grant Page incredible-fan
After running with Grant Page doing stunts on 4 of his films in the Seventies, Brian Trenchard-Smith determined to put together a celebrity vehicle manufacturing for him to try to pitch him to the worldwide marketplace. He did manipulate to get the money collectively and a distributor, but most effective had a quick quantity of time to film it which supposed he had to “cross an get a band that you may discover in a weekend” as he has stated previously within the Not Quite Hollywood interviews.
It is genuine there is slightly a plot here and is in particular a exhibit of Grant Page’s stunt work. Not certain why they didn’t simply do a documentary rather and pitch that? I recognize there may have been some behind the curtain footage floating around however distributing it returned inside the 1970s became a lot extra tough and there wasn’t some thing like YouTube or social media in which you could easily proportion clips or a channel like Trailers From Hell or Corridor Digital where you could talk numerous films and grow your target audience that manner.
About the band Sorcery, I am not sorry but after the first song I determined the prolonged musical numbers interminable as they actually introduced nothing to the plot and the whole thing simply stopped lifeless. I am no longer a track-hater through any approach and used to move watch and picture over a hundred musical performances according to 12 months and I realize sufficient to realize when someone is taking the piss.
A lot of the special functions here are from the DVD launch that came out across the time of the release of Not Quite Hollywood. The multiplied ones are from Mark Hartley going thru his backup drives for more pictures.
There are a pair of new things just like the comic and in-verbal exchange with the director and this will be the definitive version of this film to get if you were amassing it. I can do not forget Brian Trenchard-Smith telling me on the time just to buy Not Quite Hollywood if that was all I could come up with the money for.
This could be splendid to put on for a displaying with buddies as you could have it on inside the historical past for something to observe as it does no longer remember as tons in case you miss the speak as a great deal as there’s.
I could endorse this one to tough-middle action fanatics who want the quality version of this film and Brian Trenchard-Smith/Grant Page first-rate lovers. Everyone else perhaps have a have a look at the alternative releases first and get this one later. I am looking forward to getting the Man From Hong Kong and Death cheaters.
