The Guy Fisher Story

The Guy Fisher Story

Director: Troy Reed

This documentary focuses on the relationship between Guy Fisher and Leroy Nicky Barnes, the two most notorious drug trade during the 1970's. Fisher the former owner of the world famous Apollo Theater, and Barnes, named "Mr. Untouchable" by the NY Times, were at once friends, competitors, and allies in the struggle to control the lions share of America's drug trade.

After years of circumventing the law, Nicky Barnes was eventually arrested and sentenced to life imprisonment, without the eligibility of parole. Interestingly, the prosecutor in the case was the soon to be mayor of NYC, Rudolph Giuliani. Eleven months after his incarceration, in exchange for a reduction in his sentence, Barnes telephoned Federal prosecutors indicating that he would agree to become a government informant in their case against Guy Fisher and a number of other people. This testimony was all the state needed to put Fisher away for the rest of his life.
