Double-bill of Telly Savalas films. In 'Border Cop' (1979), Savalas plays a border guard who tries to stop the daily convoy of trucks taking truckloads of illegal Mexican to low-paid jobs in California. In 'Pancho Villa' (1972), rescued from execution in 1916, rebel Mexican leader Pancho Villa (Savalas)sets about obtaining guns for his men. Having raised $30,000, he sends his second-in-command Scotty across the border to buy the weapons, but Scotty is double-crossed by the gun dealers: his men are wiped out and he himself barely escapes. Villa vows revenge, and sets off for Columbus with his men to take on both the dealers and the US army.
