Storyline

At a Texas barbecue, a pretty woman chats up a wealthy rancher, and soon they're off on a horseback ride. Before she shoots him on an isolated road, she gives him a minute to reflect on who he might have offended on his rise to the top. She's Angela de Vries, a contract killer based in L.A. She wants this to have been her last job; her contractor wants one more death, a national union leader, made to look like an accident. She starts her homework on this mark. Meanwhile, in her private life, she's in love with a budding photographer. Is there any way that she can get out of the game and have a full love life? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Lovely and MAJOR lethal
8 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very entertaining film from the '70s, produced by Aaron Spelling and written by Yvette Mimieux, who stars in it, looks gorgeous (it is, after all, Aaron Spelling), and surrounds herself with men, particularly Dack Rambo.

Mimieux plays a woman in a man's job - she's a hit woman. Though very successful knocking people off, she gets tired of it and, in love with Rambo, wants to retire from the business and live with him in Mexico. Her costars, besides Rambo, are Clu Gulager, Joseph Campanella, Keenan Wynn - basically all men.

There's one very fun scene at the airport when Mimieux, attempting to disguise herself, offers a woman (Mitzi Hoag) outrageous money for her coat. I'd have handed it over too.

Obviously a very brainy woman in real life, Mimieux does this cold, impersonal kind of role very well, and she's a real knockout in this (as usual). The film contains a very neat twist as well. Highly recommended.
