Director Richard Rush (The Stunt Man) and star Jack Nicholson in their dues-paying days. This 1967 cheapie was made for Joe Solomon's outfit, U.S. Films, and features Nicholson as an existentialist gas station attendant (nicknamed “the Poet”) adopted by gang leader Adam Roarke. But their friendship sours when Adam's girl (Sabrina Scharf) awakens to Jack's more delicate spiritual qualities. Laszlo Kovacs shot it; the real-life Angels appear as extras.
