The stage is set for a series of confrontations when photographer Mark Jefferson (Tom Eplin) agrees to help his friend Roger (John Mayall) defend his night club against a handful of organized crime figures. Mark has an added incentive for becoming involved as his ex-girlfriend Carol (Cheri Cameron Newell) sings at the club. But the gangsters are willing to use mayhem and murder in order to take over Roger's business. It appears that the petty mobsters are out to sell illegal weapons to anyone who wants them, especially L.A.'s youth, instead of using the club as a front for a prostitution ring as Roger suspects. Soon Mark and his trusty motorcycle have their work cut out for them.

So-so "man on the run" thriller
12 December 2013 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Not to be confused with the PM Entertainment SUNSET STRIP with Jeff Conaway, this is an action-mystery only recommended if you want to see the titular location along with '80s California captured on film. Photographer Mark Jefferson (Tom Eplin) gets wrapped up in a mystery when his buddy who owns a club asks him to photograph an extortion. Sure enough, Mark is knocked out, the guy is killed and Mark left at the scene with the murder weapon. Of course, the police don't believe him so he is on the run trying to figure out who set him up and why. And, naturally, he is rekindling his romance with the club singer, Carol Wyatt (Cheri Cameron Newell). Writer-director William Webb does pretty much everything by the numbers here, so you won't be surprised by anything. As I mentioned earlier, it is interesting to see Sunset boulevard captured in all its 80s glory (look for uncredited Shabba Doo from BREAKIN' in an early scene) and there are some real vintage spots like when a chase extends into an L.A. Gear shop. The action highlight is probably a motorcycle and car chase through a parking garage. Webb would go on to make several more films, including the comedy DIRTY LAUNDRY (1987) and THE BANKER (1989) with Robert Forster and, full circle here, Jeff Conaway.
