By rsoonsa VINE VOICE on October 7, 2005
Format: DVD
Produced as a pilot for a television series of the same title that did not come about, this work displays a good deal of the shallow characteristics that mark 1970s United States cinema, and features singer and entertainer John Davidson cast as a convicted confidence man, Max Castle, currently employed as investigative assistant for his attorney brother Steve, and who has supposedly reformed, only applying his skills of deceit and deception for the benefit of Steve's beleaguered clients. In the instance depicted here, a client, Constance, works for an administrator, Lyle Rettig, of a large charity fund, who is framing Constance for theft of cash contributions totalling $225,000, but through investigation and, even more, deduction, Max believes that Rettig is the actual suspect for the larceny because of his large losses at gambling, and sets out to expose him by means of a virtuoso confidence scheme that is intended to recover the stolen money and return it to the charity organization. To accomplish this good deed, Max has gathered a contingent of his con artist peers, and the group quickly gains the close attention of their crooked mark at a horse racing track in southern California, the region where most of the action is set, continuing at other venues, including a probable bogus gold mine in Arizona, and there is precious little slack time provided from a plot that is full of holes and fanciful to an extreme.Read more ›

I have always been a huge John Davidson fan so I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. There are so few opportunities to see him in anything anymore.
