This June – a rarity un-earthed! A prize catch worth the fight to finally land! THE DEUCE Boys turn up the temperature when it gets to be 92 IN THE SHADE, at that rat-trap known as the ANCO Theatre – where it screened – un-advertised – for one week only in 1976!! Perfect for the sweat-sticky seats of Summer – keep your cool if you can – this one is 100% HOT! Don’t let it slip through your fingers!
Plus: Prizes and surprises, a Fernet-Branca sponsored after-party, and music by Maestro Jeff! Hosted and presented by THE DEUCE JOCKEYS: Jeff, Andy, and Joe!
THE DEUCE heats it up with the rarely – pretty much NEVER – screened Florida fishing face-off fun of 92 IN THE SHADE! Delicious dark comedy set amongst the kooks of sun-bleached Key West … Flip-floppin’ blue-blood bum Peter Fonda bungles his way into treacherous territory when he decides to take up the charter trophy fishing guide biz against bonkers boat captains Warren Oates and Harry Dean Stanton … Tenuous friendships and tensions in the Tropical heat! A temptress in a tutu! Rich in ribald dialogue and raucous raconteuring … With a cast that can’t be beat! The sole directorial effort of cult hero/author Thomas McGuane – adapted from his own 1973 National Book Award winning novel – mining the minutiae of Eastern Seaboard eccentricities and mannerisms with maniacal precision and pointed poeticism … Languid, laid-back, and looney as they come – 92 IN THE SHADE was “dumped” in Times Square’s most decrepit depot – the Anco – by a studio too stumped to know what to do with it – and it’s a trip you won’t want to miss! Did you look at that cast list?!? What else would you need?!?
