Panic in Needle Park, The (Blu-ray)

We no longer offer this title for sale, this listing is here for reference. Screen Archives still carries a wide selection of Twilight Time titles.
Al Pacino made his extraordinary starring début as Bobby, a fast-talking, hustling junkie in The Panic in Needle Park (1971), directed by Jerry Schatzberg from a screenplay by the distinguished screenwriting team of Joan Didion and John Gregory Dunne. Roaming a grim stretch of New York’s Upper West Side, Bobby hooks up with a relative innocent, Helen (Kitty Winn), and as she joins him in addiction, their doomed romance becomes the fulcrum around which this gritty slice-of-life drama turns.
