A scene from this movie was shot in my house.
2 May 2015 | by ranger00116See all my reviews

A scene from this movie was shot in my house, It was the scene where the baby of the young drug dealer couple was killed with a shotgun in it's crib, To get revenge for a drug deal gone bad.

This scene is left out of some not full movie versions.

It did appear in the TV miniseries version in 1986.

The film makers wanted to either show the baby being killed or show the baby after it was killed ?

But the Network censored it and did not let them put that in the movie.

My house got picked just by the film makers driving down my street and seeing it and coming to the door to ask if we would do it (for $500) I think this may be the only movie with a scene in it where a baby is shot ? They paid $300 dollars to rent a Mercedes to park in the driveway during the shoot. The address of the House is 430 Alcazar Ave, Coral Gables, Florida 33134. (A suburb of Miami, Fl.)

I do not live there now, But I did from 1959 to 1991.

I can Not find any full length of this movie on line, But can fond cop's for sale.

Thomas Buyea, Miami, Fl.
