Pulp Fiction Thursday: The Wrecking Crew

Dr. A and I saw Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood last weekend. We both loved it. I thought it was his best movie since Jackie Brown.

Anyway, Sharon Tate is a character in the movie and went to the cinema to watch her own movie, The Wrecking Crew. Here’s a side-by-side image of Donald Hamilton’s book and the poster for the Dean Martin movie.

It’s trailer time:

The Wrecking Crew became the nickname of a group of elite LA studio musicians. They were celebrated in a documentary of that title in 2015:

    I am a huge fan of Donald Hamilton’s “Matt Helm” series, which were paperback originals published from 1960-1993. I have all twenty-seven signed by the author on his yacht in Old Saybrook, CT in ’94 or thereabouts. He allowed that he liked the films, but I’m pretty sure he just liked the checks. His novel, ‘The Big Country’ was made into a Western classic, as I am sure you would agree.

  2. The documentary about The Wrecking Crew was also a great film.
