We gave it an A-

It’s 1957. You meet a girl. You date awhile. She learns you’ve got a wife and kid at home. She breaks it off. And then you hire goons to throw lye in her face and blind her. And that’s just Act 1 of the strange but true romantic saga of onetime tabloid mainstays Burt and Linda Pugach. Director Dan Klores (Ring of Fire: The Emile Griffith Story), a former New York publicist, used Rudy Giuliani’s private-detective agency to track down the full story. But Dan, how’d you get the Pugachs on board? ”They’re listed in the phone book.” Only in New York, kids. Only in New York. (June 1)
