Carr’s 1971 pulp story Searching For Maubee, however gussied up with a title cribbed from a Bob Dylan track, would certainly not be an extremely recommendable murder enigma without the now-two-time-Oscar-winning star — regardless of a manuscript from Blade Jogger author Hampton Fancher, the sleuthing is relatively pedestrian.

However it’s likewise a positive, vivid, profoundly earwormy musical that modifies Romeo as well as Juliet as a mid-’50s skirmish in between a white road gang as well as a Puerto Rican one in New york city City.
