1970

Francis Megahy
Director

Small time hustler falls afoul of the mob after witnessing a hit.

McShane always good value in this tale of lightweight villainy that gets a bit heavier, might almost be a prequel to the better Villain a year later.
Doesn't live up to the hype on VHS sleeve artwork though, we're along way from John Wick here.

Haven't found first release date for this yet, although it turned up in Ireland and on US tv in 1975.
