Busted Up (1986) | Irene Cara Stan Shaw Paul Coufos. #IreneCaraWeek
Some battles you fight in the ring. Others you fight in the street.
When you're down...but not out, and your life is on the line....only bare-fisted determination will keep you from getting BUSTED UP. Earl Bird is fighting to save his neighborhood, his family and himself from the tightening grip of hoodlums who threaten to overpower his world. He's been a "round ring" boxer to support and raise his daughter, the only tender spot in his life. Aside from her, nothing else has ever meant so much to Bird. But now, even she isn't safe from the corrupt local front man who is systematically squeezing the local tenants out of their homes and businesses.
Directed by Conrad E. Palmisano. Starring Irene Cara, Paul Coufos, Tony Rosato, Frank Pellegrino, Gordon Judges, and Stan Shaw as "Angie." Trivia: Director Conrad E. Palmisano was married to co-star Irene Cara at the time of the film's release.
