    Probably the early '80s or late '70s. The movie opens showing meat being processed in a factory. I think a part of the plot later is gangsters turning someone into sausage in the factory and maybe sending out the packages of meat to people.

    That's all I've got.

    I think it might be 1972's Prime Cut. I pictured a cinema tough guy in the film, and ran down the list. Lee Marvin rang a bell. Anyone know if that movie opens by showing meat being processed?

    Edit: The wikipedia synopsis shows that it does indeed start that way and this is the film. I'm a decent searcher, and I always do this. Start a thread and then find it soon thereafter. [​IMG]

    If you want. I think people like to start their own because there's something in human nature that makes people want to be the first to answer a question like this. [​IMG]

    I saw this movie once on TV in 1987, very likely on HBO or whatever movie channel I had in L.A. at that time. I could have sworn it was called "The Super" and that it starred Martin Sheen. All I remember is it being a dark little thriller in which our man is the super in a Manhattan apartment building, and at some point he's out in a dangerous part of Queens or Brooklyn late one night and gets beaten up.

    I must be wrong about both title and star because I'm coming up completely blank on IMDb. The one thing I'm positive about is the year I watched it. Thanks in advance!

    Chas: Assuming Martin Sheen, could it have been The Guardian? PatH
