Jumpin’ Jive

Black gangster Pasha (Paul Harris) and his sidekicks Sweetman (Reginald Farmer) and DuDirty (Ernie Lee Banks) take on the Mafia family led by Big Tony (F-Troop’s Frank DeKova) in 1950’s Chicago. From the title (it’s also known as Baby Needs A New Pair Of Shoes) it sounds like a comedy, but it’s not. Don’t expect high camp from this flick. That’s not to say that it’s not funny in spots…and it’s quite quirky…for one thing the most vicious assassin in the movie is seductive transvestite Serene (Don Edmondson)…but the film is totally straight-faced and not too shabby all around…
