Synopsis

As a once-popular TV clown now doing store openings, a hero only to his young son (played by real-life son David), Dom DeLuise is caught in a gangland execution while on a fill-in club date and his partner, Jack Gilford, is shot. His identification of the shooter (Henry Silva) differs from that of other eyewitnesses, whom the cops believe, so he puts his family in jeopardy by tracking down the gunman himself. DeLuise made his dramatic TV debut in this film, on which he also was executive producer and found roles for his three sons and his wife (as a TV floor manager).
