Cinema Overdrive presents BONNIE'S KIDS (1973) on Wednesday, March 8th at Mission Valley Cinema. This film was a huge (and often overlooked) influence on Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction. Sisters Myra (Robin Mattson) and Ellie (Tiffany Bolling) live in California with their abusive step-father Charley (Leo Gordon) who was married to their now-deceased mother, Bonnie. When the step-father attacks the younger Myra, Ellie shoots him with a shotgun. Rather than reporting the death to the authorities, the two sisters flee to Los Angeles to live with a wealthy uncle (Scott Brady), their only known relative. Unbeknownst to Ellie, the uncle soon has her involved in a money-laundering operation, but when she uncovers the nefarious scheme, she double-crosses her uncle and absconds with the money. Ellie then directs Myra to meet her in El Paso with plans for them to flee the country. A string of unfortunate events ensues as the uncle and his hitmen attempt to retrieve the money. Also starring Alex Rocco from The Godfather as "Eddy." And Sharon Gless from Cagney & Lacey as "Sharon."
