Cast: Cliff Gorman, Joseph Bologna, John P. Ryan 1970s-vintage sweat and grime are seemingly baked into the celluloid in this NYC crime caper from director Avakian. Donald Westlake’s original screenplay (later turned into a novel) tells the tale of two crooked cops trying to outwit wall street and the mob with one big score.
