Storyline

Jack Ryan is a young Vietnam veteran with a criminal record, who gets fired from his job as a migrant laborer on a California produce farm run by the mean-spirited camp manager Bob Rodgers. Ryan then meets and teams up with the seductive Nancy Barker the secretary and mistress to the unscrupulous owner Ray Ritchie. When Ryan takes another job as a cleaner at a local motel owned by Sam Mirakian a local justice-of-the-peace, Nancy again approaches Ryan to help her rob Ritchie's safe in his house which allegedly has $50,000 of payroll money. Ryan reluctantly agrees to help with the heist, but becomes highly distrustful of Nancy, suspecting she may double-cross him to keep all the money for herself, and vice versa with her over him.

Leaving "Peyton Place"
28 November 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

One of the mysterious young women trying to fill the footsteps left by a fleeing Mia Farrow on ABC-TV's "Peyton Place" was lovely Leigh Taylor-Young. Instead of providing the camera with clues for locating Mia, the coy Ms. Young hooked up with roddy Ryan O'Neal, who had been serving as the town's good-looking hunk for several years. Mr. O'Neal was looking to follow castmate Farrow into movie stardom, and newcomer Young encouraged changes. Call it "The Big Bounce".

Alas, millions did not flock to the sinsational new gossiped-about couple on the big screen, although the film featured beautiful California scenery, a very generous helping of Young's naked form, and some brief views of hunky O'Neal's buttocks. The Mike Curb score may be a deterrent, but the movie could grow on you. It's a sexy time capsule, at least. Veteran Van Heflin gets the best of writer Elmore Leonard's lines, and Lee Grant (yet another "Peyton Place" alumni) always helps.

**** The Big Bounce (3/5/69) Alex March ~ Ryan O'Neal, Leigh Taylor-Young, Van Heflin, Lee Grant
