Azziz Family Values
20 February 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Years ago when I was working for the NYS Crime Victims Board I got the claim for a double homicide, two brothers, one of whom was having an affair with a married woman. Unfortunately for them both, they were done in by the father of the woman and they were a traditional Arab family. Someone forgot to tell them where they were and such things are not countenanced in the good old USA. And this particular papa did not have the resources that this Azziz family does.

All this goes back to Robert Alda who is a rich real estate broker who hires pretty girls and pretty boys as the case may be to break up marriages so he can sell the expensive Beverly Hills homes for these rich people. One of those pretty boys is Richard Romanus. But when he gets involved with the daughter of Gilbert Green, a rich Arab sheik all those Azziz family values about honor enter the picture.

There are these folks that want to kill Romanus and then there's James Garner whom he seeks help from. And then there's Alda who thinks a deal can be worked out about anything.

If we didn't need their oil who would want to be involved with these rather warped and misogynistic and chauvinistic people?
