    The Incomparable Mothership March 15, 2014 Old Movie Club: “Get Carter” and “The Taking of Pelham One Two Three.”
    186 Kazoo Parade

    We reconvene our Old Movie Club to watch two gritty early-1970s films that have been unfortunately remade in the last decade: “Get Carter” starring Michael Caine, and “The Taking of Pelham One Two Three” starring Walter Matthau. We learn about slide-based pornography, metaphors involving stick-shift cars, angry New York transit officers, kazoo parades, and so much more.
