Your thoughts on this? Just bought it today for 3 new, thats about $1.20. Its Al Pachino's 1st ever film! If you dont know about it here it is...


In the film that Variety dubbed "a total triumph", Al Pacino- in his first major movie role- plays Bobby, a heroin addict who meets his clean girlfriend Helen (Kitty Winn) and introduces her to a new strung-out world filled with young derelicts who steal, love, cheat, befriend and betray. A jungle, ruled by addiction and passion.

Actors: Al Pacino ; Kitty Winn ; Alan Vint ; Richard Bright ; Kiel Martin
Director: Jerry Schatzberg
Year: 1971

Same was on my mind! Maybe they re-did the cover of this old movie when Al was getting famous?

Never seen this movie tho.
