The movie is based on real events; some facts that presumably would have made the main character seem less sympathetic were left out.

Obligatory Oscar clues: This movie won more than one Oscar, has three cast members who, combined, have four acting Oscar wins, and was directed by an Oscar-winning director.

A title character (Hughes; it looks as if it's really Robards who's riding the cycle, not a stuntman) enters the frame. The same character, played by a different actor, was the title character of another multi-Oscar-winning film. (The Aviator, 2004)

Looks like I can guess now. It's Melvin and Howard.

Norm, you were just 13 screen shots away from getting this.

Well done Dimension X.

Thanks, it looks like the handicap system helped me after all.

Now if I could just remember what movie I remember this guy from...

Looking over the IMDB credits, Jack Verbois is listed as "Holdup Man" -- this scene isn't exactly a holdup, but he does try to attack Melvin with a gun, so maybe that's him.

More casting trivia:

Chip Taylor isn't recognizable from any of his brief, long shots but plays the guy that Lynda (Steenburgen) runs off with near the start of the film. He's the writer of Wild Thing and Angel of the Morning and the brother of Jon Voight and uncle of Angelina Jolie.

Gloria Grahame (Oscar winner for The Bad and the Beautiful) plays Lynda's mom, but, strangely, has no lines -- a cutting room casualty, maybe?

Cheryl "Rainbeaux" Smith is on the right of the shot from post #3.

Joe Spinell has a few lines as a club owner but isn't credited.

My next shot of would've been of Martine Beswick(e) (From Russia with Love, Thunderball). I like it so here it is ...

Yeah, I looked at Jack Verbois' credits earlier, but didn't see anything that rang a bell. I might be confusing him with someone else.

Crap, I thought that looked like her, but not enough to check her IMDb credits. I could've had this one in three shots ...oh, wait.

So, do you want me to post some pics, or are you starting a new thread?

Go ahead and post if you like. I am having some internet connection problems and it will take me until tomorrow (at least).

Well, I don't want this to fall off the first page because of me, so I'll go ahead and post something. If you have the new thread ready to go, I can make this one really easy, just let me know.

Now I have an excuse to post this pic I wasn't going to use:



No, but you're close on the year.

The pictorial clues will get more obvious from here on.

Here's the link to the DVD Talk review of the Warner Archives MOD disc which I just happened to see on the top of this page this morning when I came here to post these pics.

That looks like Kristine DeBell and Marilu Henner in the 3rd pic, so I'll go with Bloodbrothers (1978).
