Anyone seen Boardwalk, a 1979 American drama?

Post by Cochese »

Boardwalk is a 1979 American drama film written by Stephen Verona and Leigh Chapman and directed by Verona. It stars Ruth Gordon, Lee Strasberg and Janet Leigh.

The film is about the Rosen family and their struggle with a gang terrorizing their Coney Island neighborhood. It was filmed on location at numerous spots in New York city, including the famous but now defunct Dubrow's Cafeteria.

I couldn't find anything. It's seems to be even more obscure than The Warriors.

Great flick, and highly underrated. I remember HBO used to air this movie all the time around 1979-80. I was around 9 years old when I saw it, and was kind of scared of the gangs that harrassed the elderly people in this movie. But scared in a good way, the kind that made you want to watch it and see how it would turn out.

You had HBO back in 79-80?

They only broadcast for 9 hours a a day back then, and were still known as Home Box Office!

Yes we did, here in Nowhere, Minnesota. The best thing about Home Box Office was the obscure film shorts they'd sometimes show between films, or "Video Jukebox", where they'd play early music videos, before there was Night Flight or MTV. Speaking of which, our cable company somehow couldn't manage to get MTV here until around 1984-85.
