The Stoolie Details


Comedian [[Performer~P46232~Jackie Mason~jackiemason]] made one of his many comeback attempts after the 1966 [[Feature~V216975~Ed Sullivan Show~theedsullivanshow[tvseries]]] "flipping the finger" debacle with the low-budget The Stoolie. Mason plays a cheap crook who cops a plea with the law by offering to trap other thieves with bait money. But Mason can't leave well enough alone; he steals $7500 of the money himself and high-tails it to Miami Beach. Now he must continually look over his shoulder as both the police and the crooks try to catch up with him. Seedily effective at times (though not during the love scenes between Mason and leading lady [[Performer~P39632~Marcia Jean Kurtz~marciajeankurtz]]), The Stoolie was produced in Florida and New Jersey by Jackie Mason himself; it received very limited release in 1972, then was given a second unsuccessful distribution in 1974. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
