I believe this is Paul Wilson's version, now being made by
Joe Porper. Has anyone seen Paul perform this?

Superfly? Does it come with the hat and fur coat?

Still waiting to hear whether the last coin vanish is well managed.

Jonathan,

You might be thinking of Huggy Bear. Superfly had a floor length leather coat, if I remember correctly.

Sable it was - for real.

The movie... had a great soundtrack.

Can't recall the Starsky and Hutch well enough to comment on Huggy Bear's wardrobe beyond that it was loud. Perhaps designed to work so his entrance would be like Ms Slocombe's in 'Are You Being Served'?

The remake was the one with the goldfish shoes right?

In the poster for the movie, Superfly is wearing what looks like a standard trenchcoat.

Regardless, I stand corrected.
