There are obviously some movie buffs on DC. I thought it may be an opportunity to post movie info fragments, such as plot or remembered locations, cast etc.. to see if anyone can remember the title.
I have been unable to find this film title: The film concerns an auto mechanic who works at a Firestone Tire Store. A mafioso brings his Caddy to him if he hears the least noise that shouldn't be there. He refers to the mechanic's ability to ipick up sounds no one else can detect(except of course the mafia guy since he is so attuned to his own car.) I believe he says words to the effect "the kid has some ear" several times in the film.
Where it gets dicey for the mechanic is that for some reason the mafia don's girl friend thinks he is sexy. She cheats on the don with him. The don gets wise and pursues them to kill the mechanic etc..
I think the actor who plays the mechanic is a first timer or no name guy. I cannot recall who plays the mafioso. I tried Joe Peshi but found nothing in his filmography that rang a bell.
If you think you know the film or have one of your own to find, please post.
