Scheider plays a manufacturer and unfaithful husband to aspiring politician Ann-Margret who falls prey to a sleazy trio of blackmailers. Thriller specialist Frankenheimer (The Manchurian Candidate, Seconds) directed this second, more faithful adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s contemporary crime novel.
