One of those actors whom nobody can identify by name but everybody knows, Vincent Schiavelli met his fate in Scicily yesterday (no, they didn't, the cigarette industry did). Like Charles Durning and John McGiver before him, Vincent Schiavelli was one of those guys who was in virtually every movie of a certain era. From "Ghost" ("I was pushed in front of that subway!") through "Buckaroo Bonzai" ("Nice night.") through "Ridgemont High" ("I just switched to Sanka and I'm having a bad day, so have a heart.") and beyond, not to mention TV roles like "Taxi" ("Lahht-kahhh . . ."), he was one of the essential faces of 80s and 90s pop culture.

Dirty Weekend is the last of three films Marko Lulic selected to be
shown at Anthology Film Archives this Fall. The November film
Themroc was a stunning success. And Dirty Weekend promises more
absurd, spectacular fun.
The story is about three anarchists Fabrizio, Raul and Silvia who
take an industrialist and his mistress hostage. In exchange for
their hostages they demand a plane and money. While waiting for
their ransom, the anarchists hide out in a villa that belongs to a
retired general. The industrialist reveals himself as a coward, and
is willing to make any compromise to save his life. His mistress
quickly becomes disenchanted by her industrialist lover, and falls
in love with the very charming Fabrizio.
Starring Marcello Mastroianni and Oliver Reed
105 min / color / 1973
A joint French and Italian production
