Sam Nicoletti (Robert De Niro), a promising young filmmaker who gets sucked into the porn industry, is murdered. A decade later, Sam’s big brother Vito is released from a twelve year stretch in prison. Distraught over not being able to protect his younger brother, Vito sets out on a mission to find the person responsible for the murder. As events of the past are recounted by Sam’s closest friends, a web of lust and blackmail are slowly revealed – connecting his murder to a political conspiracy.
The Swap took a decade to complete. Filmed in 1969 and originally titled Sam’s Song, the project was never released as it was intended to be. In 1979, the unfinished film was re-edited and inserted into new footage involving the vendetta carried out by Vito Nicoletti.
Reason of the public domain status: Not registered in the Library of Congress.
A political filmmaker finds himself in Long Island for a weekend where he finds himself entangled with a high-living, jet set crowd. At first it is exciting, but soon he finds himself disillusioned by their shallowness. The film contains an early performance by Robert De Niro. Footage from Sam’s Song was later re-edited into a completely different movie, known as both The Swap and Line of Fire, in which a man investigates the death of his brother.
