suspense movie made for TV in 1967
16 October 2006 | by rongeddSee all my reviews

great movie! i haven't seen it on TV in a couple of decades, but would love to see it again. anyone know when it might be on TV again, or where i might get a copy? it reminds me somewhat of another really good movie made for TV called brotherhood of the bell. a large and powerful crime syndicate was prevalent in both. the protagonist in both had to escape from life threatening situation. Inga Stephens has never been better. it is too bad this movie wasn't released to the theaters, or at least introduced on video. it is certainly considered a classic by those of us that have seen it, but so many haven't. it will probably be on video sometime in the future, the sooner the better.
