A runaway truck containing the corpse of a slain gang leader rolls into a California nightclub owned by Johnny Cain, a hard bitten former free-lance adventurer. The gang threatens to kill Johnny, unless he solves the murder. The CIA also investigates - because it turns out that the slaying was part of a long-range Communist plan to take over the crime syndicate. Cain's search for clues leads him into a maze of beautiful girls, mysterious Oriental statues and murderous spies. Written by

One of the good things about this film is picking out the veteran actors that show up. Nehemia Persoff, David Brian, Robert Alda, Buddy Grecco(?). The plot, if you can call it that, was held together with string. Bad guys, syndicate types having deals with the Chinese. West is a "Soldier of Fortune" up to his nose in trouble, with an ex-girlfriend in tow, cops and the mob and the chinese after him. And one scene with a pilot of a private jet..watch him as he does his scene with his hand in his jacket pocket, but not the usual way one would put his hand in his pocket.....Was a soundtrack made of the theme? Who knows.
