Today's Movie: Across 110th Street (Barry Shear, 1972)

Blaxploitation deluxe. It has that 1970s TV cop show look. A check over at IMDB shows that Shear headed straight for TV after this with credits that included Ironside, Starsky & Hutch, Streets Of San Francisco etc.
One more thing I've gotta check on IMDB: why did the mob shoot Anthony Quinn at the end of the movie. Quinn was quite happy to take the mob's money by Kotto refused. Why not shoot Kotto?
Update: guy at IMDB says the mob guy killed Quinn for personal reasons not connected to the mob: Quinn made him lose face by beating him in front of his boss. OK.

Today's Tune: Black Skin Blue Eyed Boys
It's nice when someone else does all the legwork. I spotted this over at Funky16Corners. If you read through their comments section you'll find as much info as you'll ever need about ST-4.
Now, who's gonna volunteeer to track down info on this Tony Morgan fellow?
