Example text

The Hawks hero has a strong homosexual streak and feels that he could very well do without women altogether. Neither the Fuller hero nor the Fuller heroine can do without each other. That's the basis for their mutual drama. Hawks is examining a traditional world in which women are half emancipated: whatever her apparent independence, we feel that Feathers in Rio Bravo will wait around for Chance. Fuller heroines could not wait around for Fuller heroes even if they wanted to - their drives 81 Tending wounds: House of Bamboo; and Pickup on South Street Shock Corridor (Constance Towers as Cathy, with Barrett); and Underworld USA (Cliff Robertson as Tolly with Dolores Dean as Cuddles) are as powerful and conflicting as those of the male.

So Short Round is already at home with the names of US Army weapons. He is dressed in ill-fitting US Army uniform. Tolly becomes a revengemaddened hoodlum; Skip and Candy in Pickup on South Street we feel to be orphans in their prime, baring their fangs at the world to hide their wounds. Helga's brother joins the Werewolf; the orphans in The Nahed Kiss are actually crippled and can act as pirates only in fantasy games. Children, whether orphans or not, are under continual threat: the final shoot-out in House of Bamboo takes place in a children's playground, and the most horrifying moment in Underworld USA, a movie packed with violence, is the killing of a child by the Syndicate torpedo, Gus.

Fuller films love scenes like a patrol in a booby-trapped, sniper-filled no man's land. Candy and Skip kiss and cuddle on the New York waterfront. The setting may be sordid but the expressions of mutual affection, or at any rate desire, look genuine enough. In fact, Candy is trying to get some microfilm off Skip for her ex-boy friend, and Skip is intent on using her as a go-between to obtain the best price he can for his film. Tolly rescues Cuddles; then, in a particularly brutal pseudo-love scene, tends her wounds, not out of affection but in order to prise Gus's telephone number out of her.
