Last month was another great success thanks to everyone who showed up! Mac Bell said, “Fun time at the Greeley Grindhouse. Thanks to friends and family who joined us.”
Cold Sweat is a 1970 movie based on the 1959 novel “Ride the Nightmare” written by Richard Matheson. The internationally produced movie was filmed around Beaulieu-sur-Mer.
What’s “Cold Sweat” about you ask? An American, Joe Martin, lives in the South of France with his wife, Fabienne, and their daughter. After fighting in the Korean war Joe wants a quieter lifestyle and chooses to rent out boats for a living.
And, of course there is a reason Joe’s wanting to lay low. While an army sergeant he struck his Colonel and was then imprisoned. While there he meets his former company commander, Captain Ross, and a soldier, named Vermont, who served under Joe. Ross and Vermont had hijacked army vehicles and became involved in black marketing. Joe, Captain Ross, and Vermont agreed to escape from the military prison. A former Legionnaire called “Katanga organized the escape, and things go according to plan until a German officer notices their getaway vehicle. Katanga kills the officer. Concerned and disgusted about the murder, Joe escapes in the car by himself leaving his friends and Katanga behind where they are recaptured. His wife and daughter are then kidnapped by drug dealers and Martin must fight back.
A fun fact concerning “Cold Sweat”? The film is known for an extended car chase with an Opel Commodore GS/E I6.
