Description by

Target Of An Assassin (1976, Color): President Lunda, the beleaguered head of an unstable African nation, is the target of an assassin. In the hospital with a life threatening illness and under 24-hour armed guard, he struggles to hold onto his power while being constantly reminded of his mortality. An unlikely friendship forms between the President and his male nurse. As the unknown assassin plans to strike, the militant black President discovers that the only person he can trust is a white man!

Starring Anthony Quinn, John Philip Law; Directed by Peter Collinson.

The Capetown Affair(1967, Color): Communist spies threaten the free world until their stolen military secrets are snatched unknowingly by ace pickpocket Skip McCoy. Holding contraband whose value he does not fully understand, McCoy becomes the target of a manhunt. Enemy agents, the police and mob thugs scour Cape Town leaving a trail of bodies in their wake.

Screenwriter Sam Fuller re-imagines his film noir classic Pick Up On South Street (1953) as a candy-colored thriller shot in South Africa. Spearheaded by the sexual heat of stars Jacqueline Bisset and James Brolin, The Cape Town Affair is ignited by silver screen legend Claire Trevor, who delivers an off-the-wall performance as a black market information dealer masquerading as a vagabond necktie seller.

Starring Claire Trevor, James Brolin, Jacqueline Bisset; Screenplay by Harold Medford and Samuel Fuller; Directed by Robert D. Webb.
