Ron Newman

I saw this years ago at Harvard Film Archive. At that time, I thought the director said it was shot at Jefferson Park housing project in North Cambridge, rather than Roosevelt Tower. Maybe I'm confused?

Paul Sherman

I interviewed Jan Egleson about locations, so I'm confused, too. Chances are they shot some at both projects.


I am desperatley trying to obtain a copy of this movie, does anyone have any suggestions on how to do that ? I can't find it anywhere !!!

Hi. I was an actor in all three of Jan's working class "trilogy" of films. The Dark End of the Street was indeed shot in Jefferson Park, not the Towers, I know because I was there and I also grew up in Jefferson Park. Sexton Can was actually off of Revere Beach Parkway in Everett and was owned by a friend of one of the producers.
If anyone wants a copy of the 3 films I have them on dvd. My email is: Garethtrue@gmail.com.
Take care,
Johnny Sullivan
