I love this film! Telly "Kojak" Savalas plays a heroin dealing drug lord living in Mexico, and it's up to Dave "Man From U.N.C.L.E." McCallum to stop him! McCallum plays Sol Madrid, a fed trying to crack down on the drug smuggling to America. He infiltrates Telly's lair by pretending to be a smuggler who promises to make Savalas millions. Telly agrees and and McCallum gets deeper and deeper into trouble. A film rarely seen, it's just a really cool, late sixties, drug runner movie with a kick butt soundtrack from Lalo Schifrin! Check your local listings to see when it airs, or, try to find it as a bootleg! Either way, see this film! Who loves ya, baby?!?
