Trying to bootstrap his way out of Brooklyn's mean streets is Diamond, a rap musician. With his long-time pal Gage acting as his manager, he's trying to lay down a demo tape with cut-rate studio time. To pay the bills, he and Gage run drugs for "Mr. B." Inside a week, Diamond's beloved mother dies suddenly, his father appears after an absence of 12 years and wants a relationship, and his girlfriend Kia tells him she's pregnant, asking him if he's ready to be a father. Gage steals $100,000 in a multiple-felony robbery so that Diamond can record a full album, not knowing it's Mr. B's money he's taken. B wants his money, Diamond wants his music, Tia wants an answer.

What was the relevance of her cyst removal? She is pretty much hyprocritical and couldn't care less about the girls. I was so disappointed that those girls were not picked up at the airport given that they were so young? Have the film makers and more importantly, these so called reputable "Caring" (bullshit) agencies have even a heart because I certainly saw no compassion. They treated these beautiful (inside and outside) girls with so much disrespect and coldness. To Ashley, you said in the film you want children, if you had a daughter and things were different and you weren't so fortunate, just imagine your own daughter in their situation? How would you feel?

Eytan D (ag) wrote: "Saturday Night Fever" is really a product of its time. The clothes, the hair, the dancing, the music. So, by today's standards, it's a bit dated. But watching it from a 70's perspective, there aren't many dance movies that can accomplish what "Saturday Night Fever" did. It has a cool, at times very real story, great music (particularly by the Bee Gees), and the role that made John Travolta a star. Very enjoyable!

That I will exert every possible means in my power for the extermination of the anarchist, the Roman hierarchy and their abettors..." ...lawl, and with that pledge - said by the initiate held at gunpoint, no less - a new member is welcomed into THE BLACK LEGION. Jeez...what a bunch of idiots! The sad thing though is that I'm sure there are still folks today who espouse the beliefs of this klu klux klan-like organization that was in operation in the United States during the 1930's. THE BLACK LEGION is one of many Warner Brothers films from the 30's which touched upon topical sociological issues...in this case, xenophobia. Frank Taylor (Humphrey Bogart) is a factory worker who is resentful of being passed up for a promotion to supervisor. The position he had been hoping for was instead given to a studious foreign born co-worker. Duh! Frank hears about and becomes involved with like-minded individuals who blame the ills of society on foreigners. Dadburn foreigners who take jobs away from real 'mericans like Frank. So when Frank tells his wife Ruth (Erin O'Brien-Moore) that he will be going out with "the boys" ...well, foreigners better beware!!! I'm sure the film is well meaning...but it's also pretty pedestrian and predictable. Predictable thanks to the Hayes Code which pretty much specifies that criminals in films be given their just desserts - if you know what I mean! This film is of interest if you are a fan of Bogart. He really has great screen presence here in one of his earlier starring roles. Also in attendance is a youngish Ann Sheridan, who as always - is easy on the eyes! 6
