The Gun (1974) | #PepeSernaDay
Landmark TV movie directed by John Badham (Bingo Long, Saturday Night Fever) was an update of a formula we have seen before in Hollywood films like Winchester 73 and Tales of Manhattan. We follow the stories surrounding the passing of an object. Its the 1970s, so no big roles centering on Blacks in this movie (we were in a progressive mindset), but there is a long segment featuring Pepe Serna of Car Wash, Which Was Is Up and Scarface fame. The concept has be revised many times since, including a short lived TV series in 1997. Feel free to comment, but spoilers will be deleted.
