David Callan, top agent/assassin for the S.I.S., was forced to retired because he had lost his nerve. Now, Callan is called back into service to handle the assassination of Schneider, a German businessman. His former boss promises Callan that he'll be returned to active status if he follows orders, but as always Callan refuses to act until he knows why Schneider has been marked for death. This film is a remake of the same story presented in "A Magnum for Schneider." Written by

The events of the film refer to the attempt on Schneider's life as taking place on Sunday 22nd October, which would date the film to 1972. The tax disc on his car, however, is dated Nov 73. This is also verified by a newsstand reference to Royal Wedding pictures - this was the marriage of Princess Anne
to Captain Mark Phillips, also in November 1973. See more
