Special Guest: Sidney J. Furie

We’re looking at the 1973 action film HIT! from director Sidney J. Furie. The film stars Billy Dee Williams as federal agent Nick Allen. When Nick’s sister takes a hot shot, he goes on the warpath for the people that put the smack on the streets. Rather than dealing with two bit hustlers and thugs, Nick takes it all the way to the source, making a real French Connection with a group of drug kingpins in Marseilles.

We’re joined by filmmaker Daniel Kremer who’s writing Furie’s biography.
