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 ...

This Is A Top Rate David Janssen Movie
29 April 2007 | by climbingivySee all my reviews

Nowhere To Run is a top rate David Janssen movie.I believe that Nowhere To Run is one of David Janssen's best movies that he ever made.I just watched this movie again and it has not lost it's punch for me.David Janssen's career was cut off way too soon as far as I am concerned.The writing was imaginative,and I wonder if the plot for the story originated from a real case.I did not take my eyes off of the movie from the beginning of the movie to the very last second of the movie.Nowhere To Run has a great cast in addition to David Janssen, for instance Stefanie Powers.All of her movies are good,just like David Janssen's movies are all good.If you want to see a very good film with a great plot,superb writing and acting,then check this little beauty out.I have this movie.
