Bloodhounds of Broadway on UK tv tonight
Here’s a quick not for fans in the UK about “Bloodhounds of Broadway” being shown on digital channel FIVE US at 8 PM tonight.
New York, New Year’s Eve, 1928. High Society dame Harriet Mackyle
(Julie Hagerty) is throwing a party. New York’s most fashionable and frivolous
socialites will be there. They include luckless pony player, Regret (Matt Dillon),
powerful gambling operator, The Brain (Rutger Hauer), the honorable but
penniless Feet Samuels (Randy Quaid), and Broadway’s most desirable show-
girl, Hortense Hathaway (Madonna).
During the final hours before dawn,
fortunes are lost and gained, crimes committed and romance blooms in a night
that promises to be the last big blowout of the Jazz Era.
Here are a few Film Facts and tidbits:
• In this movie, Madonna sings “I Surrender, Dear“. This song has not been released commercially.
• The club in the film is called “Mindy’s“, and is located at 327 West 47th Street.
Howard Brookner was suffering from Aids, and sadly died shortly after completing it. Madonna showed her support by visiting him at the hospital, and while there she visited not only him but all the other patients on the Aids ward at St Vincent’s hospital.
Thanks to Paul.
