Mitchell (1975) (part 7 of 8)
As Cummings detailed, Mitchell (now wearing his own Andy Capp hat) is chauffeuring an old woman who’s picking up her luggage at Cummings’ shipyard. This process is shown in its entirety, from when the car is parked, to a cruise ship employee wheeling out a steamer trunk, to the woman signing for it, to Mitchell putting it in the trunk of his car, to the car driving off. Gotta fill up the running time somehow. Benton, sporting the very worst of 70’s fashions, watches from a phone booth.
Cummings, meanwhile, is at home and sitting next to a very bizarre looking lamp. He phones Mistretta and lets him know everything’s going according to plan, oh, and there’s a cop delivering the drugs and Mistretta should kill him. Mistretta yells, “Are you out of your mind?” and in possibly the worst attempt at a clever quip in the entire film, Cummings replies, “No, I’ll be out on my boat.”
