When ex-small-time criminal Kelly Olson (Doug Wilson) returns to Los Angeles for his kid brother's funeral, not many people are happy to see him. Not his mother (Beppie De Vries), not his ex-girlfriend (Jeanne Baird), not the cops, and not local hood Rico Lanari (Tony Lewis). Kelly insists he's gone straight, but nobody believes him. Convinced his brother was murdered, he slips back into his thug ways to get a few answers from a bunch of low-lifes.

Engaging Little Crime Drama
This is a very short, 63 min.,crime story and mystery. It probably was a vanity picture since it was produced, edited and starred Doug Wilson, who looked like a cross between Richard Boone and singer Marty Robbins. He's not bad, but it's hard to tell if he's being low key or wether he's not that much of an actor. The rest of the cast is unknowns and non-actors and a lot of it was shot on location in L.A., but it's not inept. This little "B" reflected the movie and TV tough guy of the times right down to the phony jazz sound track. It also owes a lot to the Johne Payne film "The Crooked Way". For a quickie to view though, not bad.
