I was lucky in that I caught Mean Frank and Crazy Tony when it played in my area at the Drive Inn in 1975 or 6. This film was shot in 1973 in Italy and France and is one of Lee's best films. The long chase with Lee driving the devil out of a Mercedes Benz delivery truck was shot very well. The Squeeze was shot winter 1977/78 but didn't get a U. S. release until late 1981. Same these films didn't get a major release in the states. And Escape from New York probably way Squeeze got a release. Death Row has missing scenes, reversed scenes and different names for the supporting cast that are fake. Somebody ruined a good film to cash in on Lee's success in Escape from New York. Shameless.
