EXTRAS: Alternate cut of movie
Italian born actor, writer and director Peter Savage (real name, Francesco "Pete" Petrella) was raised in the crime-ridden Bronx during the Great Depression. He met young thug Jake Lamotta and the two became inseparable, taking up boxing in the local gym and ultimately writing Jake's biopic screenplay to Martin Scorcese's classic Raging Bull in 1980. Prior to writing that legendary script, he and LaMotta would collaborate on other "legit" films like WWII-era gangster films The Runaways (1965) and Cauliflower Cupids (1970). Around that same time Savage would make some adult films under pseudonyms like "A. 'Nutty' Savage" and "Armand Peters". "Armand" wrote, directed and acted in the perfect New York grindhouse movie A Saint, A Woman, A Devil in 1976, a film that would later have the hardcore sex scenes edited out and be released and retitled as simply Sylvia.
