St. Ives (1976 print).

So strange to find this 70's 16mm film print and spot actors Jeff Goldblum and Robert Englund (aka Freddy Krueger) in small bit parts in it playing gangster hoodlum street thugs - Halarious. Goldblum clearly was being typecast by Hollywood in his 20's and getting only roles to play swarthy thugs trying to kill Charles Bronson! He even played one of the degenerate gang members who broke into Bronson's house and attacked his family in, Death Wish. So weird and funny, if they only knew he'd move on the play The Fly, Jurassic Park and Independence Day. Hmmmmm, not sure if his acting range has varied much over the past decades. I'll bite my tongue. St. Ives has a great soundtrack written by Lalo Schifrin and also an incredible cast no matter how mediocre the script is. And, Jacqueline Bisset stars in it which makes you lose track of time rather fast. bye.
