Across 110th Street

Part of Fun City: New York in the Movies 1967–75
Saturday, August 24, 2013, 4:30 p.m.

Dir. Barry Shear. 1972, 102 mins. Digital projection. With Anthony Quinn, Yaphet Kotto, Anthony Franciosa. Fueled by Bobby Womack’s haunting theme, directed by Barry Shear (Wild in the Streets) from a novel by a Channel 5 news cameraman, this farrago of corrupt cops, ghetto hustlers, and downtown mobsters is the least glamorous and most violent of Blaxploitation films—producer-star Anthony Quinn held its world premiere in Harlem, at the Loews Victoria, on 125th Street.
