(Episode 167) "Midnight Express" The True Story of Billy Hayes.
Billy Hayes and his life story were made into the 1978 movie "Midnight Express", which told the true story of an American backpacker who was jailed for trying to sneak a few kilos of grade-A hashish back into the United States. With a screenplay by Oliver Stone (earning him his first Oscar), a haunting electro score by Giorgio Moroder (also scoring an Oscar) and a riveting performance from then newcomer Brad Davis, Midnight Express became a breakout hit that would forever be ingrained in the memories of many a viewer.
