Re: RARA-AVIS: Get Carter

Date: 13 Oct 2000

"Saw this in yesterday's digest: "It is the third time a film has been made of the novel Jack's Return Home by Ted Lewis. The best-known version remains the 1971 film, directed by Mike Hodges."

The other version that readily comes to mind is the new Stallone one, but one question: what is the name and year of the third version?"

According to the (Internet Movie Database), it was a kind of blaxploitation version of GET CARTER released in 1972 as HIT MAN. Starred none other than Pam Grier. I haven't seen it.
