A so rare crime gem

I searched a long time for this underrated drama speaking of a young assassin, payed by James Best. A good character study for a movie that should have been best and more widely shown. It seems that is is available in DVD, but unfortunately in a poor 16mm copy. Anyway, even if the topic itself may be not so unforeseeable, it remains worth seeing, only for Jim Best, Mala Powers and Ted De Corsia too. It's actually not entirely a crime film, but rather a drama. Poor production design, as you can guess, but solid acting. No, I don't get it why it was not more shown on channels like TCM for instance. Or maybe it has been, I don't know.
