'Electra Glide in Blue'.

If you read Robert Blake's book 'Life of a Rascal' he describes how Guercio was useless and did not direct the film. The book is peppered with the kind of thinking and writing that you see throughout the film, so I believe him.

One funny story was that Steve McQueen called him up angry, having used Guercio for a new film they wanted to make because they'd seen Electra Glide and liked it----then McQueen was livid and confused because Guercio was useless. Blake told him to just make the film around Guercio, who to use and whatnot and they did.

If you look at his body of work regarding film it's quite believable since his body of work consists of only a few films, two involving Blake.

I love the Russian film of 1979 most of all.

It has two names.

In Soviet times, it was called "The Adventures of Prince Florizel / Приключения принца Флоризеля."

Now it is called "The Club of suicides, or the adventures of a titled person / Клуб самоубийц, или Приключения титулованной особы."

It there is on the Internet but without English subtitles.

That's about right.

He wrote the stories for some of his films, using fanciful pen-names such as Charles Bogle and Otis Criblecoblis.

In You Can't Cheat an Honest Man (1939), he says, "There's a Eubangi in the fuel supply!" (Translation: a nigger in the wood pile)

In You're Telling Me! (1934), he reprises "The Golf Specialist". If you're in the right mood, this is almost insanely funny.

His must-see movies:

Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941)
You Can't Cheat an Honest Man (1939)
The Bank Dick (1940)
Poppy (1936)
Man on the Flying Trapeze (1935)
It's a Gift (1934)
The Old Fashioned Way (1934)
You're Telling Me! (1934)

On a different topic, this movie may give the most realistic portrayal of American Indians:
Ulzana's Raid (1972)
