Storyline

Douglas Brown is a movie star who wakes up to find he is being blackmailed by someone he doesn't know. He calls his agent Jack Girardi who calls Hollywood private detective Frank Manascalpo to sort things out. Frank does well, at first, but he finds the wrong man. He finds an aspiring writer/director Max O'Leary, who is under the mistaken impression that the sudden attention he is receiving might be because Douglas Brown wants to make his movie. He doesn't. In the end, Max does get his big break in Hollywood. Unfortunately, he is going to have to kill someone to get it. Written by Anonymous

A Pretty Straight Forward Story.
7 September 2018 | by whitemanfromtowneSee all my reviews

This was a pretty straight forward story. A film producers fails miserably at attempting to blackmail a Hollywood actor with a DVD recording of him being with tranny, and that's where the story goes, stays, and ends. It's not a long drawn out journey story, but it does take you on a nice little blackmail extortion ride and brings you to the destination. A little funny, yet serious, kudos to the all the actors making this watchable. This formula that has been done a few times, but for these characters and with this story line, it was decently done. I definitely recommend ....good watch
