Storyline

Harry's married to Marian and things are not going all that well, so he wants out but somehow feels that a divorce is not the answer. After developing a winning blackjack system, he hatches a plan that takes years of preparation: to fake his death, assume a new identity and win $500,000 at blackjack. When his wife notices his peculiar behavior, she is urged by her parents to hire a private investigator to find out what he is doing. In an unusual twist of events, Harry discovers the private investigator and not only hires him to keep tabs on his wife (whom he suspects is having an affair) but they become confidants. Harry carries out his fake suicide successfully and heads for Reno to complete the rest of his plan, but he doesn't count on meeting lovely Amy and falling in love. To further complicate matters, Amy is planning to leave for Israel and Harry decides to go with her, but en route the plane is hijacked and Harry must find a way to conceal both his $500,000 blackjack winnings ...

Has to be in my 'top ten'
25 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in Australia when I was working with Frankie Vaughan in the mid seventies and have not seen or heard of it since. I'm not a fan of David Jansen, I feel he takes 'taciturn' way past it's sell by date, but in my opinion he did a great job on this. I was blown away by the audacity of the plot. Frank and I and the rest of the team ALL agreed the story was superb. The twists and turns kept me / us on the edge of our collective seat. The ending was SPECTACULAR. After all the "will he

  • won't he" our whole crew was cheering as the credits rolled. To help


with a happy retirement I need to get a copy of this film at any reasonable price. Please - can anybody help me ? ken h.
