Born Winner (1976) -- Joe Dallesandro Plays Perikles, a retired motorcycle racer, who now leads a life of crime. At the beginning of the film you see him crash a disco party (bell bottoms, bad music and all) and rob everyone of their money and jewelry. He hooks up with one of the waiters (Sandro) from the party, and they both start doing purse snatchings with the aid of a stolen motorcycle. One day they snatch a beautiful women s purse, Sandro is intrigued by a personal diary he finds in the purse, feeling bad he meets her to give it back. Soon Perikles and Sandro going out with her, creating jealousy on both sides, and a weird menage a trois type team. Perikles soon decides that the life of crime is not for him, he tries to win a motorcycle race but gets gunned down in the end by a sniper?!?! A great film despite the muddled ending.
