5 REASONS TO GO AND SEE

Electra Glide in Blue

Robert Blake

This former child actor celebrated for his performance in the film of Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. was tried and acquitted for the murder of his wife in 2001. Blake hasn’t acted since his creepy turn as the Mystery Man in David Lynch’s Lost Highway.

James William Guercio

Made just this one film. After it bombed ?" misunderstood as a fascist road movie ?" Guercio quit the business to manage soft rock bands Chicago and Blood, Sweat and Tears.

Chicago

The band members appear in the film (this may be a reason not to go see).

Dialogue

Motorcycle cop

Big John Wintergreen (Blake): ‘There ain’t nothin’ I hate more in this world than that elephant under my ass.’

Bikes

The slo-mo scene in which a cop drives his Harley through a plate glass window is as awesome as anything Sam Peckinpah ever shot.

Filmhouse, 623 8030, 20 Aug, 9.30pm, £5.50 (£4.20).
