A stumble through the studio backlots, THE TONY LONGO TRILOGY is comprised of three sections, all culled from the supporting appearances in Los Angeles-shot films by the beefy Tony Longo, referred to by Andersen in the opening title card as an “axiom of the American action cinema.” The three segments present variations as to what results when the focus is shifted from the foreground (the star) to the background: here, poor Tony Longo who, it seems, was destined to never catch a break.
