Silvio Narizzano directs Telly Savalas and Franco Nero in this rather unusual Italian action/thriller featuring a supporting role by Mark Lester of all people, the kid who played the lead in the 1968 version of Oliver!
Memphis (Savalas) and Mosquito (Nero) are two thugs who rob a jewelry store in Rome and hope to get across the French border before the cops nab them. Mosquito’s girlfriend Maria (Ely Galleani of Baba Yaga and Five Dolls For An August Moon) is along for the ride, but unbeknownst to the three of them, so is a kid named Lennox Duncan (Lester) who happens to be hiding in the backseat of the car they just hijacked.
