Storyline

Investment broker Lloyd Rollins, insisting to his wife Linda that they stop at Las Vegas on their trip from Boston, begins to gamble heavily. Linda visits the Last Chance, a casino where she used to sing, and where she meets police lieutenant Dave Andrews, with whom she had a brief affair some years earlier. Insurance investigator Tom Hubler soon arrives to keep an eye on Linda's valuable necklace for his company, unaware that Rollins hocked the necklace with Clayton, owner of the Last Chance. Lt. Andrews, rebuffed by Linda, learns that Clayton has been murdered. He deduces the killer's identity and begins a deadly chase when he learns the killer has taken Linda hostage and fled into the desert. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

"Film Noir At It's Best"
30 November 1999 | by Remo-15See all my reviews

If you ever get the chance, don't miss this movie. We've all read about "Dick And Jane". Here is your chance to see "Vic And Jane". This movie is right there with. "Out Of The Past" & "His Kind Of Woman" or "Female On The Beach.

They just "DON"T" make'em like this anymore. What a perfect match up. Kick back with your other half. Lock the door, Order out for some food. Then take the phone "OFF" the hook and enjoy. "OH YEESSSSS"
