Pulp Fiction Thursday: Stakeout On Dope Street

This seems to be my year to catch everything and the wild temperature swings aren’t helping at all. Achoo. Anyway, I’d heard the great crime fiction writer James Ellroy rave about Stakeout On Dope Street, recorded it on the trusty dvr and watched it yesterday. Except for the ending, I’m not quite sure what Ellroy sees in it, but it has a swell title:

Here are some lobby cards featuring the young cast members. I suspect Warners hoped that one of them would be the next James Dean, Sal Mineo, Natalie Wood, or Dennis Hopper. It didn’t happen.

    Jonathan Haze’s big moment was in the original Little Shop of Horrors.
    This looks fascinating. It’s for streaming rental on Vudu for $2.99. Worth it? Ilove 1950s teen-trouble flicks.

    I give it 2 stars. I’d wait until it came back to TCM unless you’re ready to do some hate watching.
