Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...A Small Town in Texas (1976) - This by-the-numbers action-revenge drama that plays like several other similarly-plotted, good ol' boy pulp flicks of its era, such as Billy Jack (1971) and Walking Tall (1973). Timothy Bottoms stars as Poke Jackson, a convict who's just been released from prison after a stint for drug trafficking. The catch is that Poke was innocent, having been framed for the crime by a corrupt lawman, Sheriff Duke (Bo Hopkins). Poke makes his way home to his beautiful girlfriend Mary Lee (Susan George) and their illegitimate son, only to find that Duke has moved into his place as Mary's lover. Incensed, Poke sets out on a course of vengeance that will pit him against the tough cop and culminate in a lethal car chase. With supporting characters named "Bull," "Cleotus," and "Buford," the redneck pedigree of A Small Town in Texas (1976) is distinct. The film was penned by screenwriter William W. Norton, who wrote several better examples of this high-octane, macho genre, including White Lightning (1973) and Gator (1976). (Rotten Tomatoes)

Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...The Candy Tangerine Man (1975) - Sunset Boulevard is a lucrative place to work for the Black Baron, a pimp with a distinctive red and yellow Rolls Royce and plenty of girls on his books. He don't take no mess from his girls, his madam or his competitors and viciously defends his patch. First, he clobbers the Mob who attempt to move in on his patch. Second, he tracks down one of his girls who runs off with a suitcase full of his cash. Third, he disposes of two policemen. But by now he knows his pimping days are numbered, so after a final explosive gun battle he switches to being his alter ego, mild-mannered businessman Ron who lives out in the leafy suburbs with an unsuspecting wife and family.

SomethingAwful.com says:

Pimpin' ain't easy, but judging by "The Candy Tangerine Man", it is very convoluted and requires a whole shitload of killing. A streetsmart hustler named "The Baron" is intent on reclaiming his role as "Most Embarrassing Example of the 1970's" from rival pimp Dusty Compton. He accomplishes this by killing off almost every major character he runs across.

We couldn't find a trailer for the film, it's not available on DVD as far as we can tell, but we were able to find the first 6 minutes of the movie on YouTube. Enjoy!
