Bonus Episode - Andrew Davis Interview

For this special 20-minute bonus episode, Jim interviews director Andrew Davis to talk about his debut film from 1978, STONY ISLAND which is being released on DVD & VOD on April 24th.  We learn about how the film was made, and its cultural significance, including how Andrew got his start in the business.  In addition, we briefly discuss memories of filming THE FUGITIVE here in the city of Chicago back in the early 90s as well.  

STONY ISLAND was filmed on the gritty streets of Chicago’s south side and tells the story of Richie Bloom (Richie Davis), the only white kid on the block, as he forms an R&B band with his best friend, Kevin (Edward “Stoney” Robinson). With the help of their mentor, aging sax legend Percy (Gene “Daddy G” Barge), they pull together a funky supergroup, stealing practice time at night in the local funeral home. Despite few resources and heavy losses this resilient group of dedicated musicians—armed only with wit, sleight of hand and outrageous Chicago bravado—must come together to finally make their smash debut. 

Thanks again to Andrew Davis for being a guest on the show and providing this incredibly interesting look at an underseen gem that integrates both Chicago history and also beautifully captures how the love of music brings people together.   Order your DVD by visiting the official movie website:
