Johnny Cash debuted in a starring role in this trite exploitation film. Cash plays a cool-headed murderer who mugs then holds hostage the wife of a bank president, Forester. No problem except that bank executive, Woods, is seeing another woman, Mason, and planning to dump Forester anyway.
Tayback is Cash's partner in crime, and Ron Howard is his precocious son. The screenplay is by M.K. Forester, which happens to be the pen name for Cay Forester, the victim of the tale.
