THE FUSE IS LIT! THE TRAP IS SET! THE EXPLOSIVE CONSPIRACY HAS BEGUN! From Lamont Johnson, the director of A Covenant with Death, The McKenzie Break, Lipstick and Cattle Annie and Little Britches, comes this exciting espionage thriller starring George Peppard (Rough Night in Jericho) and Michael Sarrazin (The Reincarnation of Peter Proud). A violent blast destroys the U.S. government’s top-secret Groundstar Research Complex, and six high-ranking scientists are incinerated. The saboteur, employee John David Welles (Sarrazin), is found barely alive and clutching stolen national security documents. But when ruthless government investigator Tuxan (Peppard) is assigned to the case, he discovers that Welles’s memory has been mysteriously erased. Welles escapes from federal custody, and Tuxan pursues the fugitive in a dangerous game of cat and mouse. With the help of Nicole Devon (Christine Belford, Pocket Money), a beautiful young woman, Welles begins to piece together the truth about his own shocking past. Is he an enemy spy responsible for the Groundstar massacre or an innocent pawn in the deadliest conspiracy of all? Beautifully shot in CinemaScope by Michael Reed (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) and co-starring James Olson (The Andromeda Strain), Cliff Potts (Silent Running) and Tim O’Connor (Buck Rogers in the 25th Century).
