Mr. Ricco :: Dean Martin, Bullets, and BAM/PFA

A patron recently clued us in to the existence of this trailer for Mr. Ricco. The film stars an aging Dean Martin in the title role as “San Francisco’s toughest attorney,” who has been hired to defend a black militant accused of murder. But the real star of this now hard-to-find 1975 gem is BAM/PFA. Check out this trailer, which features a shootout in the BAM/PFA galleries. We promise no Hans Hoffmann works were hurt during the filming!
