COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Cast (feature film)
A pair of hit men track down a heroin shipment while the police get closer.
Episcopalian minister Gil Allen (John Derek) keeps up his college days interest in boxing by working out at a gym run by his friend, Tom Kelley (Richard Shannon.) Gil declines when fight manager Gus McAuliffe (Paul Douglas) offers to get him some bouts but, spurred by the need for a new iron lung and a swimming pool in his community, Gil takes on a fight, without disclosing his true profession, and knocks out his opponent with one punch.

And someone they're not expecting has violent designs on them...
