Dead Pigeon on Beethoven Street (Tatort: Tote Taube in der Beethovenstraße)

  • Samuel Fuller /
  • Federal Republic of Germany /
  • 1974 /
  • 127 mins

Glenn Corbett, Christa Lang, Eric P Caspar, Anton Diffring, William Ray, Anthony Chin / Fiction / English

A rare screening of the longer version of this anarchic crime comedy from legendary Hollywood outsider Samuel Fuller (see A Fuller Life, page ##), who smuggled it onto screens as an episode of the German prime-time series Tatort. Infuriated television audiences didn't know what hit them when their beloved series hero vanished to make way for an American colleague let loose in chaotic carnival-time Cologne to avenge his partner's murder - amid ample bursts of Fuller's proverbial “cinema fist” style.
