Richard Kiley and Anne Francis
28 March 2012 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Blood Bargain" stars Richard Kiley as professional hit man Jim Derry, who is called in to do a job for racketeer Rupert Harney (Barney Martin), whose former bookie Eddie Breech (Richard Long) has gone into business for himself at Harney's expense. Derry learns that Breech has a disabled wife, Connie (Anne Francis), who was injured by her husband during a scuffle a year ago at the top of the stairs, and he's been trying to make it up to her financially ever since. Feeling sorry for the two, Derry decides to arrange Breech's death using the corpse of a different man, while collecting a fee from both parties. Ross Elliott pops up as a police lieutenant, Peter Brocco appears as undertaker, and Anthony D. Call (STAR TREK's "The Corbomite Maneuver") plays one of Harney's thugs.
