Cisco Pike was filmed all around Venice in 1971 and stars Kris Kristofferson, Gene Hackman, Karen Black and Harry Dean Stanton. The video clip below is DVD quality but the upload is messed up so you may have to pause it here and there. (It has some weird audio on it, not from the film.) There is great footage of Venice in the 70’s throughout the film. You can find the DVD on Amazon by clicking here: Cisco Pike
Cisco Pike is out of jail for dealing drugs, living with girlfriend Sue in Venice, going straight, writing songs and singing. Trouble is, he’s got another court date, so he’s vulnerable to pressure from a crooked cop, LAPD Sergeant Leo Holland, who gives Cisco less than three days to sell bricks of marijuana and deliver $10,000.
