The first thing that struck me when watching this clip from “Opening Soon at a Theater Near You” was the realization that I couldn’t avert my eyes from Gene Siskel’s epic moustache. The second thing that hit me was how much Siskel seems to have despised Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, in particular he was turned off by the brutal violence in the film.
This clips comes to us courtesy of Henry Conway007’s YouTube channel and as you can see from the image above this was when Siskel and Ebert were hosting the monthly Chicago only TV show that by the next year would become Sneak Previews and be carried nationwide thanks to PBS.
