    For those who love film and film history --

    Image Entertainment has released Harry Hurwitz's

    1970 The Projectionist.

    This tiny film, shot on a shoestring budget, should

    be a must on viewing lists.

    For a minute there, I thought this thread was a reference to the 1973 "Columbo" episode "Double Exposure" where Chuck played a projectionist who got bumped off by Robert Culp because he knew too much. [​IMG]

    Wow! Someone else knows about this film besides me (The DVD is currently being shipped to me, I can't wait!). I was so surprised & happy to see that this film was coming out on DVD. I saw it about 10 years ago and I thought that it was a real sleeper. It's also something of a time capsule for me as I remember that some of it was shot in Times Square and I enjoy seeing Times Square as it use to be.
    I wish Warner would release another film Chuck McCann was in The Heart is a Lonely Hunter in which Alan Arkin gives the performance of his career.

    This is a brilliant movie...the rare sort of film that I wanted to watch again immediately.
    Feel free to point and laugh at my writing style, but I threw together a review for the DVD at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=3632
