I watched this on Sundance last night. Memories. I have two copies of this book in storage – I checked eBay to find out who wrote it and found the paperback going for 60 bucks. Yikes!!!
I ordered my copies straight from the publisher in 1981. Couldn’t find it in the store. The first time I saw EFNY in the theater, I flipped. I returned to the theater five times that week. I dragged a friend to see it; we blew a tire on the way and I had to borrow a flashlight from a nearby homeowner. We didn’t miss the opening. Whoo hoo!!!
Snake Plissken was probably the first movie badass I ever fell in love with. If you EVER get a chance to see this movie, check it out. It’s dated but it rocks! The second one was a miserable mess; I really thought the writers would come up with something original. No such luck. It was a pathetic rehash of the first.
