Political thriller directed by John G. Avildsen, starring George C. Scott and Marlon Brando. Detective Barney Caine (Scott) uncovers a formula that was devised by the Nazis in WW II to make gasoline from synthetic products, thereby eliminating the necessity for oil - and oil companies. When a major oil company finds out about the formula, it sets out on a mission to destroy it and anyone who knows about it.
