Synopsis

Violent and bloody 'Blaxploitation' 70s thriller starring Anthony Quinn as Frank Mattelli, a good-natured but corrupt cop who, along with his young (and honest) black partner, Detective Lieutenant Pope (Yaphet Kotto), is assigned to track down three amateur crooks who have stolen $300, 000 from the Mafia. Anthony Franciosa co-stars as the sadistic and power-hungry mob boss, Nick D'Salvio. The title song, recorded by Bobby Womack, was re-used two decades later by Quentin Tarantino in his homage to 1970s crime flicks 'Jackie Brown'.
