Gangland boss Rick Coyle (a seething Raymond Burr) tries to get career criminal Joe Sullivan (Danny O'Keefe) busted out of prison, hoping the jailbird will be killed in the process (to avoiding paying him the $50,000 he's owed.) But if you're going to double-cross Joe Sullivan, you better make sure he's dead, because there's no force in nature that'll stop him from his bloody payback. What should've been a typical revenge noir is also a stunning love triangle between Joe, his girlfriend, Pat, and his case worker (!), Ann, not to mention a superbly entertaining crime drama. Originally released by Eagle-Lion Films.
