    Plot Summary for
    Joe (1970)

    Bill, a wealthy businessman, confronts his junkie daughter's drug-dealing boyfriend; in the ensuing argument, Bill kills him. Panic-stricken, he wanders the streets and eventually stops at a bar. There he runs into a drunken factory worker named Joe, who hates hippies, blacks, and anyone who is "different", and would like to kill one himself. The two start talking, and Bill reveals his secret to Joe. Complications ensue.

      It kinda comes down to fear of impotence. Really. A bit heavy-handed. But Peter Boyle (who plays Joe) is REALLY good in it, and Susan Sarandon made her movie debut as the hippie daughter.
