Screen legend Burt Lancaster (The Train, Elmer Gantry) stars as Jim Slade, a former Chicago policeman who has just been released from prison for shooting his wife’s lover. He’s offered and takes a job as a campus night watchman at Jordon College. When a coed, the daughter of a prominent senator, is murdered and the local sheriff (Harris Yulin, Scarface) tries to pin the crime on a creepy night janitor (Charles Tyner, The Longest Yard), Slade decides to start his own unauthorized investigation that takes the lid off the hornets’ nest. Lancaster and Roland Kibbee (Valdez Is Coming) co-wrote, co-produced and co-directed this top-notch murder mystery with an amazing cast that includes Susan Clark (Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here), Cameron Mitchell (Blood and Black Lace), Morgan Woodward (Cool Hand Luke), Robert Quarry (Madhouse), Ed Lauter (Breakheart Pass), Joan Lorring (The Verdict) and Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke of TV’s The Dukes of Hazzard). The second and final film directed by Lancaster (The Kentuckian).
