I'd never heard that before. Tough to replace the zither, but he just about pulls it off. Would have been a great track to use for a Monty Python homage to the film.

My son found MAD MONSTER PARTY on Netflix last week. It was pretty fascinating as a bizarro Rankin/Bass experience.
Man, he couldn't even be bothered to come up with an original title. Perhaps I missed the joke, I'm a little light on ironic facial hair.
I wish that I hadn't already read Lehane's novel. It will be interesting to see how Scorcese tells the story visually. I'm looking forward to seeing this one.
Hey pdf, CRUISING has been released in anamorphic (1.85:1), with a commentary track from Friedkin, by Warner Home Video. Netflix has it. I watched it the other night. The portrait of pre-AIDS New York is fairly mind-bending, and it's amazing to see what you could get away with at that time. The extra features are good, describing the controversy surrounding the film as well as Friedkin's take on that controversy.
Wow! Davies is an impressive character. Thanks for the great article Ives.
