“Charlie Steel” is the fourth release in the Retro Afrika Collection. The ongoing project is comprised of digitally-remastered classic Apartheid-era films, produced by and starring native South Africans. It pays homage to Hollywood action in groundbreaking B-movie style, a precursor to today’s burgeoning Nollywood industry.
“Charlie Steel” is a classic detective story.
When Dlamini’s daughter, Dudu, is held for ransom, he calls on Charlie Steel, an old friend and renowned private investigator. Steel attempts to infiltrate the kidnapping gang, but is exposed by a vicious gang-member. A touch of love might help take down the gang, but at what cost?
In a departure from the norm at the time, Charlie Steel was produced in English vs. most of the the films from the time which were in Zulu.
1984 / 80 minutes / Color / English language (with English subtitles) / A film by Bevis Parsons
