She formed her own media group in , and three years later her talk show began airing on 20 stations across the country. The company represented nonprofit ministries and conservative political organizations.
Breidenbach had served since September as an assistant to Robertson, the chairman at Christian broadcasting network, a company spokesman said. Breidenbach provided support for other conservative candidates in Polk County, including Wilkinson and U.
She cares about people, and she's always a lady. She's been quite an influence on my life. Though clearly ailing, she deflected attention away from her condition, he said.

He started at 18 and ended as a part-time talk show host Mondays from 1: He was an announcer, his original career love, for about 30 years, both as a disc jockey in many different formats, and a newsman, as he worked his way upward in the business in seven different communities in Upstate New York.
It was heard over 13 counties days and at night was in 38 states. When Bob was hired by WHAM, he first did news at night and later became their morning newsman, doing four 15 minute newscasts. As a teenager, this was a station that he thought had 10 of the best radio announcers he has yet heard today and he wanted to be one of them. He made it at 28 years old. How did he get started in the broadcasting business? It was like Mickey Mantle moving to your hometown.
Bob Burns joined the local Kiwanis Club, which had a program where seniors in high school could go to the club weekly luncheon several times and sit next to someone in a business they were interested in. Bob was given a 5: He thought he knew everything there was to know about radio at But he soon came to realize that he had been given the 5: After a few months, he was given a regular daytime shift.
After he had been a radio announcer in New York State for about 20 years, things changed in when several local businessmen in his hometown who owned the radio station, bought WWJB in Brooksville. That station was struggling. They offered the general manager's job to Bob. He accepted it, put together a very good staff and really got into the new job. He worked hours a day, met with every local business and community group and vowed to help them be successful.
Many gave back to the station. Advertising was doubled in the first year, meeting a goal that gave him 18 per cent ownership in the station. Four years later, WWJB was sold to the present owners and Bob went back to New York State to manage and make successful two more radio stations over the next 17 years.

They both retired from their long careers when they were 62 in They had come back to Brooksville to see their kids three times a year since they first left in , so they knew it well and loved it. They wanted to get out of the New York snow, cold and gray skies all Winter and they moved back to Brooksville. But Bob didn't really retire fulltime.
Steve Manuel offered him a job in the station and, after several months, he accepted three days a week, a couple of hours each day. It's been going on for 10 years now. Bob loves people and has helped thousands of local residents through his many interesting guests who include people in private business, government, school, law enforcement, medical and community groups. Bob has liked real and model trains since he was a little kid and has belonged to the Citrus Model Railroad Club since On top of that, the members operate and help each other build layouts at their homes.

Bob was born in Brown County on Jan. Director George Pan-Andreas, who speaks with such a thick Greek accent that he's hard to understand on several occasions, has surely made a lousy film, but it is so damned watchable and full of hilarious set pieces and quotable dialogue, you'll be glad you watched it. I could go on-and-on about all the visual and auditory nuggets this film has to offer, like when Zeus' wife says to him, "Is that all you care about, justice and uzo? Though basically a vanity project for Pan-Andreas he's the only actor listed in the crazy opening credits , there's plenty of other stuff to laugh at, from the badly-staged martial arts fights Zeus screams like a little girl every time he gets hit , to the unbelievable action sequences check out the motorcycle stunt which results in one of the main bad guys getting a nasty tire burn on his face!
The film is very bloody in spots, including a nasty throat slashing the effects are surprisingly well done and wait until you get to the surreal ending involving Zeus and the President.
I was laughing so hard I nearly pissed myself! This is cheese of the highest order and essential to every badfilm fan. The General is not too cooperative with the international press, though and with good reason , so when nosy reporter Helen Brigitte Porsh notices that American William Corbett Richard Randall has arrived in-country secretly at the General's request, she cozies-up to him and becomes his lover, looking for the "big" story.
William agrees to take her to visit the General at his country home after she and William are attacked leaving a casino, where Helen proves quite adept in the martial arts and we learn that the General has strange Macumba supernatural powers, like the ability to shoot electricity from his fingertips.
William and the General are business partners in an illegal drug cartel the General burned down all the drug farms not only to get the U. The General agrees to grant Helen an interview as a fav or to William, where he shows the extant of his powers by making a dwarf called Astaroth the late Nelson de la Rosa; THE RAT MAN - appear and disappear at will and applies some of his fingertip electrical skills on Helen's cranium I told you it gets stranger!
When William and Helen leave the General's home, their Jeep breaks down and they hop on a passing bus, only to have the bus attacked by some of the General's men. When a child on the bus is shot dead, Helen goes bonkers, grabs a machine gun and begins shooting back, killing several of the General's men.
William and Helen are then taken prisoner along with some Contra rebels and the General makes them all work in the mines as slaves at the dreaded "Gates of Paradise", a secret underground location where something unknown and evil is going on. This involves Contra women, including Myra, infiltrating the camp as prostitutes and, while the guards are getting their rocks off, David, William and the Contra fighters sneak in.
It doesn't go as planned. When Helen is taken prisoner and tortured by the General and Astaroth, William reveals that he is actually a U. Marine working undercover to bring down the General and leads the Contras on a raid of the General's compound to rescue Helen he fails miserably and stop the General's tyranny at least he's successful there.
This Italian-made mixture of war action and supernatural shenanigans may be strange, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it is good. Most of the war action footage here is cribbed from other Italian war films especially Umberto Lenzi's BRIDGE TO HELL  and the supernatural elements are woefully underplayed, like they were an afterthought in Donald Russo's screenplay when the production ran short and they needed to put in something to increase the running time.
The appearance of diminutive Nelson de la Rosa as the general's magical sidekick is a treat but, he, too, is underutilized and and only appears in a couple of scenes. It's definitely not one of the Big Boot's shining moments. Never legitimately released on home video in the U.
Not Rated , but there's not much in the way of blood or gore. The film opens with the freedom fighters attacking a Dutch military base lots of explosion and people on both sides getting riddled with bullets , only to have the Dutch capture the leader of the freedom fighters, who bites his own tongue off when he is questioned and gets shot for not cooperating.
The Captain of the Dutch military base wants to question the villagers as to where the freedom fighters, known as the Daredevil Commandos, are hiding and kill all those who won't assist them, but the Captain's second-in-command temporarily talks the Captain out of it, because the eyes of the world are on Indonesia and a mass slaughter of innocent people would not be in the best interest for the Dutch.
Morale is also at an all-time low Sgt. Hassim kicks the shit out of one of his comrades when the man threatens to report another soldier getting cozy with a female nurse , so when Sgt. Hassim is offered a mission to investigate a burned-out village, he grabs the rest of his team to investigate. It turns out to be a trap set-up by the Dutch and that crazy Dutch Captain. Low on ammunition, the Daredevil Commandos nevertheless win the battle using sheer brute strength One of the Daredevils is killed, though , which severely pisses-off the Dutch Captain, who steps-up the brutality World view be damned!
Hassim's Daredevils, witnessed his sister and mother being raped by the Dutch when he was younger and these newer instances are waking-up long-suppressed memories. The Dutch are aware that the freedom fighters are running low on weapons, ammunition and food, so they plan on one final big-scale attack to wipe them off the face of the Earth.
What the Dutch didn't count on is the resiliency of the Indonesian people, as the Daredevil Commandos plan to strike the Dutch where it will hurt them the worst: At their huge compound where the Dutch store a large cache of weapons, ammunition and food.
It seems the only way to truly surprise the Dutch at the compound is to climb down a huge vertical cliff, so Sgt. Hassim and his men train hard for the mission. Will this be the mission that will finally make the Dutch exit Indonesia for good? The direction, by E. Bakker who has no other film credits that I can find and may be a pseudonym , is rather flat and uninvolving, and he seems more interested in patriotic speeches rather than action through the first two-thirds of the film at one point, just before a battle, the Daredevil Commandos break out into a patriotic song that begins with "Indonesia, you are my country When the final battle does come at the Dutch compound but not before more singing and prayers , it turns into a pretty bloody and stunt-filled extravaganza, with plenty of explosions, gunfights and bullet squibs, but it still pales in comparison to most Indonesian actioners because it doesn't contain a single "What The Fuck?!?
Even the climatic rock avalanche is filmed for minimal impact. A rare loser from Producer Gope T. Samtani and Rapi Films. Alexander and Gino Makasutji. Never legitimately available on home video in the U. The film opens with a man in a big black hat, black gloves a staple of giallo films and carrying a cane with a spring-loaded blade killing a man in Genoa, Italy, one of his thugs finding a key taped to his torso.
Cobra jumps at the chance since Kadinsky was the person who got him fired. Cobra hasn't seen his son in quite a while, ever since his wife was murdered.

We soon find out that Kadinsky is the man in the black hat and gloves and he knows Cobra's every move, killing anyone who could give information to Cobra and attempting several times to take Cobra's life, all unsuccessful.
The biggest problem Cobra runs up against is that everyone he talks to is deathly afraid to talk about Kadinsky. When Papasian tells Cobra that Kadinsky is dead, we must figure out if he really is.
Let me talk about this film's bad points: The action is lazily staged, the violence too restrained for its own good in the film's defense, the print I viewed may have been edited and the dialogue laughable, but not in a funny way. The usually dependable Franco Nero looks to be sleepwalking through his role as Cobra. His "trademark" in this film is spitting out his gum or sticking it in unusual places, like a thug's forehead.
It is supposed to be funny, but it comes off as forced Nero's mouth is always moving, even when he doesn't talk! It's also obvious that Nero used a stuntman for some of his more strenuous scenes, including jumping and climbing from building-to-building another "trademark" and a long fight scene in an alleyway.
Even when Cobra's son Tim is killed, run over on orders by Goldsmith, the film rings hollow. We see Cobra crying, as he has memories of the good times he and Tim had including an uncomfortable game of two-man baseball where it is apparent Nero didn't know how to swing a bat at a ball.
In the very next scene, it looks as if he has gotten over it. Castellari has certainly done much better, including the post-apocalypse films For crying out loud, even the stunningly gorgeous Sybil Danning doesn't bother to offer up any naked flesh!
Here are some of the few positive points: When Lola gets into a fight with Cobra in an empty disco she uses martial arts moves to kick the crap out of him! Their fight is made to look like they are dancing on the disco floor, making it the film's most inventive scene.
Still, it's a cheat on the audience since Licinia Lentini is actually a woman and an obvious double was used when unmasking her false femininity. There are also a couple of deaths that are memorable. Cobra shoots a drum of gasoline, sending the assassin high into the air. Unfortunately, both deaths are bloodless. It looks to be edited in some scenes, the most notable edits come during Tim's death Italian crime films have no problem showing children getting killed and the finale, when Cobra enters Goldsmith's office and point his gun at him, accusing Jack of ordering his son's death we even get a peek at the boy's killing in Cobra's mind, images that were missing from the film at the time of the Tim's death.
We hear the gun go off and then there is a jump edit where Cobra enters an elevator. Also look for Castellari's daughter, Stefania Girolami Goodwin, as Papasian's secretary and Castellari himself as one of the thugs in the warehouse shootout. All in all, this is a very minor film in a genre of Italian movies that are usually violent and exciting. Also starring Massimo Vanni a. The lyrics to the film's title tune which sounds like it was sung by a drunk Italian!
Nobody tells me what to do! There are far more entertaining Italian crime films out there. Not Rated , but no nudity and very little blood. The only problem is, sadistic crooks Al John Morghen and Kurt Vincent Conte have caught on to their scam and they kill Harry by drowning him in a bathtub before he is able to tell them where he has hidden the money.
Phoenix cop George Ryan Bo Svenson is called to the scene of the crime and catches Al and Kurt ransacking the place, which leads to a pretty good car chase lots of crashes and stunts and a shootout on the rooftop of a building, where George gets shot several times in the chest. Luckily, he was weraring a bulletproof vest. George and Lou's investigation leads them to Las Vegas, where they learn of Kathy's involvement in the casino scam. When George gets too close to the truth, Al and Kurt ambush him on a lonely desert road, causing him to crash his car, but Lou rescues him with his helicopter and chase the bad guys again.
Al and Kurt manage to give them the slip again and kill George's girlfriend Nancy Karen De Witt after they make her give George false information she sends him to a gay bar! The bad guys then kidnap Kathy and take her away in a helicopter, where she takes them to an abandoned ranch where the money is hidden. George and Lou are in hot pursuit and the finale finds the bad guys getting killed, then George and Lou head to Vegas and get rich on the slot machines using the deceased Harry's computer gizmos.
Sometimes crime does pay. This Italian production, filmed on location in Las Vegas, Nevada and Phoenix, Arizona is a pretty good comedy action film and Bo Svenson and Fred Williamson look like they are having a ball, even if some of the dialogue is clunky. The gay bar scene doesn't make an ounce of sense, but it sure is funny. He kills people showing no emotion, killing George's girlfriend by putting two bullets point-blank into her head and shooting Kathy in the back in the film's finale, never breaking his blank stare.
The only aspect of this film that seems dated is the early 80's computer imagery and a serious faux paus that happens over the opening credits when Harry sticks an RJ11 plug into an RJ45 jack , not to mention some ridiculous, totally made-up computer jargon that Svenson has to try to say convincingly with a straight face he doesn't succeed.
They first appeared together in director Enzo. Set during the Vietnam era, the story revolves around a young black man an excellent Larenz Tate and his struggles to find a way to support his pregnant girlfriend after graduating high school. He joins the Marines because he wants to fight for his country, but he soon learns that the war is not the place to escape reality. After completing his tour of duty, he returns home to the Bronx. Unable to find a good job, he and his buddies plan an armored car robbery, hoping to collect a few hundred thousand dollars of old untraceable money that the government plans to burn.
But things go terribly wrong. This may sound like a generic plot, but the Hughes Brothers pull it off with a sense of flair and urgency. In this film it is downright brutal. During the war scenes, heads are chopped off, a soldier has his stomach slit open and his dismembered penis shoved in his mouth and, in one unbelievable scene, a soldier steps on a land mine and is blown to bits.
The violence at home is no less gruesome. People are shot in the head, crushed by moving cars and riddled with bullets. Even though it is gory, the violence is not the driving force behind this film. The story is filled with interesting characters and, for once, white people are not portrayed as raving bigots. This took guts from a black filmmaking team. DEATH BLOW - Here's your chance to see champion heavyweight boxer Duane Bobick in his only starring role and after watching his performance, you will know why his acting career was much shorter than his boxing career as a professional boxer from to , Bobick had a record of 48 wins and 4 losses; 42 of those wins by knockout.
This South Africa-lensed boxing actioner stars Bobick as Billyboy Lamont, a burly dock worker and university student who wants to be a professional boxer like his father, Don screenwriter Willie Von Rensburg , but dear old Pop discourages him from doing so, telling him, "This, my boy, is what fifteen years of fighting and being champ has got me: Ten acres of lousy, bloody ground, an old house, a few animals, that's all.
There's a new champ, Billy, and he belongs to another family. Terry has a diminutive brother named Mike Dawie Malan , who is estranged from mother Josephine, probably due to her hands-on approach to managing Terry's career even though Mike is officially Terry's manager and her indifferent treatment of him.
Billyboy secretly practices boxing in a gym away from his father's prying eyes Pop would rather Billyboy "hit the books" and make something out of his life and has become quite good at it Bobick looks at least 15 years too old to be portraying a guy supposedly college age.
When Pop catches Billyboy at the gym instead of studying at the university, he decides to teach him a lesson and challenges Billyboy to a boxing match in the ring.
Billyboy doesn't want to do it, but when his father hits him in the face and body with a few good shots, he retaliates with one hard punch, sending Pop flying across the ring and paralyzing him for life. When Josephine reads the story in the paper she holds some as-yet unknown grudge against Billyboy's father , she tells Terry that maybe someday he will do the same thing to Billyboy in the ring.
Meanwhile, the short-statured Mike catches the eye of barmaid Janet Barbara Salberg at a disco and accidentally gets her fired from her job. He feels so bad about it that he promises to get her a better job, but she doesn't believe him. Mike gets Janet a job as a maid at the Bendell household, but Josephine tells him to keep his hands off of her now that she is the hired help.
We also learn that Terry is actually the son of Billyboy's father, but he left Josephine alone and pregnant to marry Martha Trix Pienaar , who gave birth to Billyboy nine month later.
Josephine has been holding that grudge for many, many years and after marrying a millionaire and giving birth to the dwarf-like Mike did I mention she despises him and treats him like shit?
Terry has grown up to be a first class lout and ends up screwing Janet even though he knows that Mike has feelings for her When Josephine tells Terry that Janet is "beneath him", he replies coldly, "I know. Billyboy decides to become a professional boxer, even though his father may have permanently damaged Billyboy's kidneys during their fight Billyboy can't take a leak without pissing blood. He fights a series of boxers and works his way up the ranks until, yes, you guessed it, he becomes the number one contender against Terry.
Which one of these "brothers from different mothers" will turn out to be champ? Boxing may be an art form, but so is acting. Duane Bobick couldn't be more wooden if you stuffed him full of cedar chips and his stabs at emoting is pitiful and not in a "so bad, it's hilarious" way. When his girlfriend, Velma Kim Braden , is raped by Terry she is sexually assaulted fully clothed by Terry in a gym ring while intercut with one of Billyboy's bouts , his reaction is worse than no reaction at all.
It is like he just picked up a carton of eggs at the store and found one of them broken! The fault is not all Bobick's, as the acting is generally poor across the board Tullio Moneta as Terry is really, really bad and the only person here who generates any sympathy is Dawie Malan as Mike, but that's mainly because he is small and abused by everyone When Janet commits suicide, Terry laughs in Mike's face, not exactly the reaction Mike was expecting!
There is some bloody violence on view, but most of it is outside the ring nearly all the boxing matches are economically filmed and lack the "oomph" we've come to expect after the commercial success of ROCKY , which this film so clearly tries to emulate. There's a gunshot to the head, Velma's rape, a dockside fight and a couple of other incidents, but nothing to make you stand up and take notice.
It's poorly acted, written and suffers from some bad continuity problems. It has plenty of flesh but very little nudity.
The few action scenes are haphazardly staged and shot. Yet, for some reason I still haven't put my finger on it , it is highly compelling. Anna belongs to the evil Mr. Caine Anthony Caruso , a white slave trader. Frank cleans her up and promises to marry her after his next and last six month stint at sea. He plans on buying an avacado farm! While Frank is out at sea, Mr. Caine kidnaps Anna, rehooks her on drugs and makes her re-establish herself as a whore.
When Frank returns to land and cannot locate Anna, he enlists the aide of his seaman buddy Chris Mitchum and a prostitute Lisa Loring to help him track her down. When they finally locate Anna, she is walking the streets, strung-out and looking for Johns she offers to take Frank and Chris on for fifty bucks! She finally recognizes Frank and runs away, only to be purposely be hit by a truck by one of Caine's goons. In a cop-out ending, all the good guys have a happy ending. Monson also turns in this flick's best performance as Harold, the openly gay desk clerk of one of Caine's whore motels.
He is constantly getting roughed up by Frank and the goons. Monson even dresses in women's clothing and has a crying jag in one of the film's key scenes. Filmed in Ceylon now known as Sri Lanka , this Eurospy flick has some excellent travelogue footage it's not stock footage, as the actors are put in the middle of the action, giving it an air of realism and it is also an early example of showing karate in use and not as a gimmick.
The bad guys in this film are a criminal organization known as "The Golden Cats". Rogers Paul Eeckmann , witnesses the kidnapping and gives chase in his sporty convertible. Apparently, King's vehicle is capable of spitting out grenades it's confusing , as an explosion goes off in front of Mr.
Rogers convertible and it overturns. He soon finds out that it's a not-so-nice day in the neighborhood, as Mr. Rogers grabs a sword he keeps in the back of his car!
King wins, dealing Mr. Rogers a karate death blow to his temple, while Babs escapes out of the car by pinning a local goon's arm in the window of the car's door. King and his thugs leave empty-handed when the police show up, Babs telling them what has just happened. Luckily, there's a law-abiding karate expert in Ceylon to combat the bad guys. Tom gives a skeptical audience a demonstration of the power of karate, by hitting a solid cube of metal and leaving his fistprint in it!
Jo sneaks up on Tom in his hotel room and with one punch, Tom sends him flying across the room and through the door of the adjoining hotel room, which is occupied by Babs, who is in the middle of changing her clothes.
While Jo is on the floor admiring Babs' form, he notices a small tape recorder hidden under one of her tables she's being bugged.
Jo removes the tape recorder and Tom tells Babs that he needs to talk to her about Mr. When Jo goes to his hotel room, he finds Michele waiting for him. It turns out she's the assistant manager of the hotel and she asks Jo whether he takes a bath or a shower it's a shower. Knowing that is a strange question to ask a stranger, Jo immediately knows something is up and he's right. His bathtub is full of flesh-dissolving acid and when he goes to the bathroom, he hears someone sneaking into his room.
Jo moans out loud, as if the acid is dissolving his body. The thug enters the bathroom to see the results and a short scuffle ensues, resulting in Jo throwing the thug in the bathtub. Jayaratna arrives at Jo's room and, after seeing the thug's dissolved corpse, tells Jo that the Golden Cats usually dump their victims' bodies in the sewer and this isn't the first time he has seen an acid-washed corpse unfortunately, we never get to see the body. Kalatunga , are at the hotel bar, keeping a close eye on Jo and Tom.
They think Jo was killed in the shower and are surprised to see him with the Inspector and Babs in the hotel lounge, so they must think of another way to kill him. Michele sneaks into Nitro's hotel room and tries to do something to his phone, but Nitro enters unexpectedly, forcing Michele to hide. She overhears Nitro telling King that he plans on blowing up Jo with some nitroglycerine They don't call him Nitro for nothing! King walks down to the lounge, placing a small bottle of nitroglycerine on a table next to Jo, Tom, Babs and the Inspector.
Babs recognises King, but she tells the Inspector that he seems familiar, but she can't place the face Really? Meanwhile, Nitro catches Michele in his room and ties her up, while he is on the terrace, pointing a sniper rifle at the small bottle on the table.
Tom sees a reflection in the sun of the scope of the sniper rifle and begins firing his pistol in Nitro's direction, causing him to miss the bottle. Jo hands Tom the bottle and he throws it into the ocean, where it explodes. This leads to a pretty good rooftop chase between Tom and King, both of them using a palm tree to reverse pole vault to the ground!
King escapes but Sunny is captured. He then escapes by jumping off a bridge on to a moving train, the Inspector, Jo and Tom giving chase in Jeeps. The Inspector proves what a crack shot he is by shooting Sunny in the head, while his Jeep speeds over tough beach terrain.
Philip Dawson tells Jo and Tom that Sunny was a member of the Golden Cats, but Jo and Tom are suspicious of the Inspector, because he excused himself just before Nitro fired his sniper rifle and they both think he acted a little too quick on the draw when he shot Sunny in the head. Jo goes for a swim in the ocean, but first, Tom gives him a cigarette with a load in it Because Jo always complains when Tom asks him for a cigarette. In this series, they always play practical jokes on each other.
Jo knows something is up and gives the cigarette to the Inspector's assistant, Khamar Joe Abey , who lights the cigarette and it explodes in his face Khamar tells Tom that he should arrest Jo for attempted murder! Jo meets a bikini-clad Babs on the beach and she slaps Jo's face when she thinks he is getting fresh with him, but it's a crab walking across her bosom!
It's not long before Babs starts making googly eyes at Jo because, well, he's irresistable. A little later, Khamar gives them a tip, so Tom and Jo take jitneys through the streets of Ceylon to talk to a female photographer who may have taken photos key to their investigation. When they get to her house, they find her dead in her bed, a apparent victim of a poisoning. In her hand is a small golden cat statue, the criminal organization's calling card. They find her young son is in the house looking for something to eat.
He walks up to Jo and Tom and says, "Why doesn't Mama get up? Michele then appears at the house, telling the crime-fighting duo that the photographer was her brother's wife and her best friend, also telling them that the Golden Cats killed her sister. She gives them some important information about the Golden Cats, which leads Jo and Tom to an all-female karate school, where the Inspector is hiding Babs so she'll be "safe". For reasons still not clear to me, the perpetually drunk Philip Dawson is in Bombay, India to pay the Golden Cats a million dollars.
Dawson picks up the money at a small airport, where King has a cobra bite and kill Dawson's taxi driver and he pretends to be his driver. It turns out that Dawson stole the money under false pretenses What they are is beyond me and plans on keeping it all for himself. While he is in the back seat of the taxi fondling the money between his fingers, King gasses and kills him, dumping his dead body off a bridge to the river below.
Jo and Tom learn of Dawson's treachery and try to stop him, not knowing that he is already dead. Jo figures out what is going on Damned if I know how! If it seems Babs is not in the film as much as she should be, it's because actress Ann Smyrner caught a serious case of blood poisoning in Ceylon and had to be hospitalized hile the majority of the film was being shot, forcing some major rewrites to the script.
That may be why this film is so confusing. There's is a lot of talk about a "Mr. Farrow", but we never see him, only hearing his voice over the phone.
He has a lot to do with the Golden Cats, but since we never see him, his role in the plot seems moot. Still, both Tony Kendall and Brad Harris have an easy-going chemistry that carries the film and Harris has a standout karate fight with fellow bodybuilder and peplum star Dan Vadis, which is the highlight of the film. It may not make much sense but, like the other entries in the series, it is breezy entertainment of the first degree, so check your brain at the door and enjoy!
Never legitimately available on VHS in the U. I saw this film on Retromedia's free streaming site, Retromedia TV. Just like their DVD, the print is in fullscreen, but watchable. Also starring Werner Hauff who produced this series as "Theo M. After a treacherous trek through the jungle, Karamat and his prisoners finally arrive at his fortress, which is heavily fortified with men with guns and a series of maze-like caves.
The government deems an air attack or a full-on ground assault too dangerous, so they reform the Death Raiders, a small group of Black Ops. So begins this enjoyable sometimes for the wrong reasons action film from the Philippines, as Captain Barone rounds-up all the ex- members of his squad; from a disco with the prerequisite bar fight , a police hostage situation with the prerequisite attempted rape scene and helping an alcoholic member free his girlfriend from a mafia whorehouse.
Meanwhile, Karamat's son, who disagrees with his father's political views, unsuccessfully tries to lead the prisoners to freedom. When Karamat catches him, he ties him up in the middle of town and beats the stuffing oput of him with his bare hands in front of all the citizens.
This does not sit too well with Karamat's wife, who secretly plans a revolution with a sympathetic rebel in town. After Captain Barone and his men train to get into shape, they set out on their mission to Karamat's stronghold. They make it to the cave where the Governor and his daughters are being held and they get an unexpected hand from Karamat's wife and son. From then on, the group try to make it through the jungle to safety, before the Army does a full air and ground attack on the compound.
Members will be lost on the way as Captain Barone and his men must fight an inexhaustable supply of Karamat's soldiers, even as some of Barone's men return to Karamat's compound to rescue innocent women and children. Directed and co-written with a lot of intentional humor check out the disco and whorehouse scenes by Segundo Ramos SUICIDE FORCE - , this film has a lot going for it especially the early martial arts fights, including an inventive, almost comic book-like, use of a spinning bar stool , but stops dead in it's tracks every time it goes back to the Karamat father-son conflict.
As with most Filipino action films, this one contains more than a few scenes of attempted rape but, surprisingly, no nudity , including a comical scene where a bunch of Karamat's soldiers fight each other in the middle of a lake as they try to rape one of the Governor's daughters. While most of the action in the latter-half of the film is basically gunfights and explosions, the film has a kinetic energy that's infectious and fun to watch.
I was taken aback by the abrupt ending, but that's a small complaint to an otherwise highly watchable film and, at 80 minutes, it doesn't overstay it's welcome. One day, he gets a call from Elaine Debbie Brooks , the wife of one of his soldier buddies, telling him that her husband, Marty, died in a car crash and she doesn't think it was an accident, so Deacon heads to the town of King's Ransom to investigate.
Once in town, Deacon meets pretty gas station owner Audrey future director Katt Shea and immediately runs in to Sheriff Clay Marsh Kaz Garas , who warns Deacon that this town doesn't tolerate strangers. Elaine tells Deacon that the town has been taken over by a group of dastardly marijuana farmers and their leader, John Carey Crofton Hardester , is not above murder to protect his crop.
She believes Carey is responsible for Marty's death. Deacon begins asking questions around town, but finds everyone afraid to talk. While out on a date with Audrey, Carey and his men force Deacon's car off the road and beat the shit out of him Casey also has the hots for Audrey.
When Deacon doesn't take the hint to leave town, a couple of Carey's men firebomb Elaine's house, killing her she burns to death in her bed , which results in Deacon chasing the two goons in his car.
Deacon's car flips over and explodes, so Carey thinks Deacon is dead and his problems are over. In reality, Deacon escaped the explosion and he's about to make Carey's life miserable. Audrey puts them up in a secret cabin in the woods, as Deacon and his squad systematically begin to kill Carey's men and destroy the pot crop.
As more of his men end up missing, Carey's men capture Bartlett, hold him in a cell at the Sheriff's office and beat the crap out of him, but Deacon and his men pull a midnight rescue and save Bartlett. Carey kidnaps Audrey and blows up her gas station and uses her as bait. The finale finds Deacon, his men and Sheriff Marsh who finally comes to his senses battling Carey and his gang while trying save Audrey and blowing up a dam to flood the pot crop.
Not everyone both good and bad will make it out alive. Santiago's long line of 80's actioners and it's a pretty good little B-film. It's no wonder Roger Corman funded many of his films, because Santiago knew how to stretch a buck to the breaking point, yet he could still deliver interesting, if unoriginal, product.
It's a boring action film. This film use to play quite often on TV during the late 80's and early 90's and the only U. When Peter refuses, the goons beat him, tie him up, shoot and kill his young and naked son, gang-rape his wife and then shoot and kill both of them, too, before setting fire to their home. The entire atrocity was witnessed by a young girl, who leaves town and doesn't return until years later, the faces of all of Peter's murderers etched into her memory.
Innocent farmers and their families are still being murdered and their land being purchased at rock- bottom prices by Mrs. Chaw, who Richard believes is the "Landlord" behind the killings, both past and present. Richard cannot get anyone in town to believe his story, because Mrs. Chaw is well-respected around town and the only law in the territory, Deputy Sheriff John, seems to be in Mrs.
Richard becomes romantically involved with pretty young schoolteacher Catherine Alana Montri , while he secretly murders the goons under Mrs. Race fans can watch and wager on all the action at Champions Simulcast Center.
