On two separate occasions Major Booker (Chuck Norris) is standing in very close proximity when his team members are assassinated by Mrs. Mihn (Virginia Wing). Both times Mrs. Mihn, supposedly an expert shot since at least one execution is done while the target is moving, allows Major Booker to escape without attempting a second shot. See more »

The story of Good Guys Wear Black(1979) interestingly enough resembles the plot lines of Steven Seagal's early films of Above the Law(1988), Hard to Kill(1990), and Marked for Death(1991). The direction by Ted Post is very good. Good Guys Wear Black(1979) and the Dirty Harry picture, Magnum Force(1973) are the two best films for this average director. Chuck Norris stars in what is one of his better films before he would give up the cinema for television. Anne Archer is good in an early film role before she was a respectable actress. James Franciscus is terrific as the cold blooded and ruthless Politican Conrad Morgan. Has what is probably the best stunt of Chuck Norris's career with the scene where he leaps through the front window of a car and into an assassin for a martial arts kick.
