Philadelphia, PAJul 26, 2013 7:30 PMFINAL FRIDAY FILMS AT THE MAUSOLEUM
A new monthly 16mm double-feature from Exhumed Films and Cinedelphia.com
Exhumed Films, Philadelphia’s long-running genre film programmers, are teaming with Cinedelphia.com, the online center of Philadelphia’s film community, to present a monthly double-feature of rarely screened films plus bonus short pieces. The series will be held on the final Friday of every month and will feature thematically-related movies projected on 16mm.
The ongoing series debuts on Friday, July 26 at the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art and will feature two films from director Jack Starrett and star William Smith:
RUN, ANGEL, RUN! (1969)
HE SQUEALED ON HIS GANG AND THE WORD WAS OUT WASTE HIM!
Motorcycle gang member Angel reveals the secret inner workings of his club to a journalist and is then forced to go on the run with his girlfriend in tow. Actor Jack Starrett’s directorial debut and William Smith’s first role in a biker film, a genre that he would go on to dominate.
HOLLYWOOD MAN (1976)
THE COPS TRY TO STOP HIM! THE MAFIA TRIES TO STOP HIM! BUT NOBODY’S GOING TO STOP HIM!
Smith stars as Rafe Stoker, a movie producer who gets mixed up with the mob while trying to raise completion funds for his new picture. Co-written by Smith, the film is a somewhat autobiographical tale of the toils and tribulations that come with working in the low-budget biker movie industry.
Plus a collection of biker TV spots and a motorcycle safety short starring William Smith, Peter Fonda, and Evel Knieval!
August’s double-feature will be announced at the July event.
Doors at 7:30, Films at 8:00
