Throwback Thursday – Miami Blues

A look back at the Miami Blues movie trailer from April of 1990. An all time great flick, which took place in the Magic City 24 years ago. The main characters consisted of Alec Baldwin (Hunt For Red October, BeetleJuice, The Aviator), Jennifer Jason Leigh (Single White Female, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Hudsucker Proxy) and Fred Ward (Escape From Alcatraz, The Right Stuff). It was directed by George Armitage who based the film off the Miami Blues novel by Charles Willeford.

The Story Line
A recently released inmate (Frederick Frenger Jr.) moves to Miami to start a new life where he becomes romantically involved with Susie Waggoner. Though, unknown to Susie he’s still up to the same old tricks that landed him in prison in the first place. As Susie is dreaming of living happily ever after with Frederick, Sargent Hoke Moseley begins an investigation into Frederick’s crimes.
