52 Pick-Up (DVD)
Directed by John Frankenheimer
Greed! Extortion! Revenge! Based on an exciting bestseller by the great Elmore Leonard (Out of Sight) with a screenplay by Leonard and John Steppling and top-notch direction by legendary filmmaker, John Frankenheimer (The Manchurian Candidate). 52 Pick-Up evokes the chilling reminder that if you have a lot, you can loose a lot. Life is good for Los Angeles entrepreneur Harry Mitchell (Roy Scheider, Last Embrace), great business, beautiful home and a gorgeous wife (Ann-Margret, Bye Bye Birdie). Just when he thinks he'll land a seat on the city council, Harry's life suddenly spins out of control when a trio of pornographers, led by the ruthless Alan Raimy (John Glover, Gremlins 2), shows up with a video of Harry in bed with his mistress (Kelly Preston, Twins). And when Harry goes on the offensive and tries to pit one blackmailer against the other, the tension mounts - as does the possibility of murder. The stellar cast includes Clarence William III (TV's Mod Squad), Vanity (Action Jackson) and Doug McClure (At the Earth's Core).
