Fernando Di Leo's Lost Film 'Shoot First, Die Later' to Get First-Ever U.S. Screening at the New Beverly

Italian filmmaker Fernando Di Leo’s lost 1974 crime thriller “Shoot First, Die Later” will screen in the U.S. for the first time ever at the New Beverly Cinema at midnight on Saturday, Dec. 22. RaroVideo plans a DVD and Blu-ray release of the film early in 2013.

Never before released worldwide, “Shoot First” stars Luc Merenda as a crooked detective whose proud father, also in the police department, slowly realizes his son is on the take with the syndicate.

The film has yet to emerge on DVD anywhere in the world; only low-quality bootlegs currently exist.
