THE ITALIAN MACHINE (1976)
Written and Directed by David Cronenberg
Gary McKeehan, Frank Moore, Hardee T. Lineham, Chuck Shamata, Louis Negin and Toby Tarnow
A motorcycle enthusiast becomes obsessed with acquiring a rare classic model currently in possession of a rich art collector. The enthusiast fumes at the prospect of the bike being used as mere decoration in the collector's house and devises a plan to get it for himself.
With the help of some friends, they poses as a group doing a magazine article and get into the rich man's house, but twisted deals still have to be made before the bike is able to leave the premises.
This is an episode of Teleplay which was a CBC anthology series created to encourage new writers to produce quality drama. David Cronenberg directs his own script that shows his fetishistic attitudes towards machines while also creating a commentary on what constitutes true art.
THE LIE CHAIR is included on the same DVD
