DIRECTOR: SAMUEL FULLER

CAST: CLIFF ROBERTSON, DOLORES DORN, BEATRICE KAY

Fuller’s harsh, hard-nosed organized crime revenge saga strips the subject matter of any glamor, instead taking us up the hierarchy of a business run strictly along the corporate model, as monomaniacal psycho protagonist Cliff Robertson makes his way with sangfroid through the chain of command of the syndicate responsible for murdering his criminal father, determined not to stop until he hits the penthouse.
