Little Cigars

forgotten banner1237575_739834752727617_620849483_nThis was just the strangest concept I ever heard of. Here – listen to the description off of IMDB.

Little Cigars 1973

A gangster’s former mistress hooks up with a troupe of circus midgets who, as a sideline, rob banks and casinos

They aren’t kidding about the “Hooking Up” part either. Angel is sleeping with the leader o the little person gang…and that’s a little creepy, not because he’s a little person, but because he’s like sixty years old and she’s twenty.

I’m not sure what this is. It’s funny at times, but it’s not a comedy. The premise is just too goofy to be a serious crime drama though, and there’s not enough action for it to be an adventure flick.

Still, it’s entertaining. You get to see Jerry Marin from the Wizard of OZ (in one of the better performances of the movie actually) and  Felix Silla (Cousin IT, Twiki and many other parts) run around as gangsters and tough guys.  That’s my poster signed by both of them up there in the corner! Seriously, the movie’s a trip.

I linked to it once before up here but it looks like it’s been taken off Youtube. All I could find was this clip, so you’re going to have to track down a full copy yourself!
