A must-see for any fans of the late, great Tony Azito!
30 March 2010 | by (LA) – See all my reviews

While it's been difficult lately to find existing copies, any fan of Tony Azito will definitely appreciate his starring performance in this film! The first thing that came to my mind when viewing "Apple Pie" was Fellini's "Roma" with the various story-lines, song/dance numbers, theatrical scenes and such. And as mentioned in a previous review, the extended dance number at the end of the film is pretty incredible even by today's standards. Move over, "Slumdog Millionaire"! This film apparently had lots of play when it first came out (film festivals, midnight showings, etc.) years before "Flashdance" and many people felt that the big street dance scene at the end was a bit of a steal from "Apple Pie". Irene Cara (who sang the theme song for "Flashdance") was even one of the dancers in "Apple Pie"! Let's hope this once-forgotten gem makes it to NetFlix soon!
