"day of Thor 31 march 22. Somerville thee-ate-er, ten dollar senior ticket the 27 april 79 movie Saint jack (that month, besides spending my birthday on duty guarding our country against Commies and staying in a Charleston South Carolina trailer, one of my fellow Marines DID take the Korps Hello World to a SC radio station where "winner by elimination' was played exactly ONCE!). This movie ties into Apocolpyse Now coz the troops come from fighting to Singapore, Ben Gazzara as an American pimp. Set in early '70s and there IS a soundtrack album! best moments are Shirley bassey singing "Goldfinger" in a whorehouse episode and then, what DOES sum up American troops in 'Nam was "Okie from Muskogee" and "Sunday Morning Coming Down" crankin',,,yep, Merle haggard and Johnny Cash, big service favorites and even I dug 'em in rural western NY during the Woodstock era coz they seemed like "don't back down' kinda rural guys (both had done some time too! I can barely do 4/4 time...)….in all a splendd cult movie (coz I never heard of it!) with the Somerville Theater usual high standards; from what I heard from dudes that went overseas, there's a "House of the Rising Sun" in the land of the rising sun and/or that's cool I respect you more/ didn't I see you on the streets of Singapore?"......
