Matt Dillon (Rumble Fish) leads an all-star cast, including Richard Crenna (Heartbreak Ridge), Hector Elizondo (The Taking of Pelham One Two Three), Jessica Walter (Play Misty for Me) and Janet Jones (A Chorus Line), in the 1984 comedy-romance-drama (alright, let’s call it a “dramedy”) The Flamingo Kid.

In 1963, Everything was settled for 18-year-old Jeffrey (Dillon), the plumber’s son from Brooklyn: one last summer of carefree fun before college. But when he gets a job as a cabana boy at the El Flamingo Beach Club – with its shapely coeds, gin-playing cardsharps and wealthy snobs – Jeffrey is lured into a world distinctly different from his working-class roots… a world that could ultimately draw him away from his education, his background and his family!

Directed by Hollywood veteran Garry Marshall (New Year’s Eve) with a screenplay by Garry Marshall and Neal Marshall (TV’s The Carol Burnett Show), the Blu-ray and DVD incarnations of the film include the following features:

-Audio Commentary by Actor/Filmmaker Pat Healy and Film Curator Jim Healy
-Reversible Blu-ray Art
-Trailer Gallery
