The Sell Out (1976)
The Sell Out
Film / Drama / Action / Spy / Foreign
Directed by Peter Collinson
Cast: Richard Widmark, Oliver Reed and Sam Wannamaker
In this work filmed entirely in Israel, Richard Widmark gamely portrays Sam Lucas. Lucas is a 'retired' CIA operative who discovers that he is involuntarily back in action due to the sudden urging of his former initiate Gabriel Lee (Oliver Reed). Gabriel has been turned by the Soviet Union and now wants to come back into the American fold, not realizing that both players in the game have sent assassins to Israel to eliminate him, and Lucas as well. The direction places emphasis on stunts and car chases. Gayle Hunnicut, plays the wife of Lucas and former lover of Lee.
