Switchblades and Sweethearts

Crime movies in the U.S. until the 1960's featured guns as the weapon of choice . . . The gangster with a gun in his hand and a snarl on his face was a familiar sight, but sometime around 1960 the switchblade knife became the weapon of choice for some reason. In 1962 pastor David Wilkerson, after working with troubled teens in New York City for five years wrote a book named "The Cross and the Switchblade" that sold over 16 million copies. This crime story has unique music, language and beautiful huge cars and switchblade knives that sprang to attention at the push of a button that were part of the early 1960's and not seen before or since. The cars in old motion pictures are always a feast for the eyes, but the music especially struck me as unique to the time . . . Jazz played loud and with a serious and ominous tone . . . Horns blaring their lonely warning . . . and the sandy washboard swishing sounds of snare drums that were only a part of a few years surrounding 1960. John Goddard is crime syndicate gangster Ernie Rivas and Carol Ohmert is his drug-addict girlfriend Madge, and they are returning from Mexico with a box of heroine hidden inside a baby doll. Switch and Frankie are two teen boys escaping from a prison honor farm with the help of Frankie's girlfriend Donna. Fate puts the kids together with the gangster and his girl as they all flee the cops who are setting up dragnets around the area. Sure, I could tell you more about the story line, but for my money the entertainment is not in the story, but in the atmosphere . . . the music . . . the cars . . . the tough guys with hard steel . . . Switchblades . . . Let it all surround you and infuse you with a sense of the marvelous early 1960's . . . a very unique era . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
