An embittered professional wrestler, convinced that his life has no meaning outside the ring, meets a beautiful woman. Unlike most of the women he has known, she seems to be interested in him for himself rather than his fame or his money, and he finds himself becoming attracted to her. Written by
Alex Karras' portrayal of Iago "The Mad Bull" Karkus is not great, but is really okay. He plays a professional wrestler grappling with his conscience over losing his wife and son because of his career choice. During his soul-searching, he meets and falls in love with Christina Sebastiani (Susan Anspach), a fellow Greek. She doesn't like his chosen profession any more than his ex-wife, but she does try to understand him. Meanwhile, he is stalked by a demented killer (Tracy Walter). Will he win Christina's love and find the killer, or lose both her love and his life? Karras has several moments of really great acting in this film. His greatest moment is a tender scene at his brother's bedside who took a bullet meant for him. Karras has done better movies, but all in all, not a bad character study.
