Lee Van Cleef,
One of Jim Brown's three favorite films he starred in: the other two are "The Dirty Dozen" and "Mars Attacks!". See more »
At the very beginning of the film, Slaughter's father is seen sitting in his car, turns the key, and it explodes. The entire car is engulfed in flames, which shoot 20 feet into the air; the camera lingers on the inferno. The very next scene, we see Slaughter sitting in the ER. The doctor comes out of surgery and tells him that his father didn't make it. I'll say...the man was cremated. See more »
You're really far out, you know that? I mean we go out to that house and let them know we are lookin' to get killed, and all of a sudden your sittin' on top of the world like your King Shit! Man, you're weird Slaughter, I mean goddammit, you're just weird!

Jim Brown is one cool dude, even when he's making a typical 70s blaxploitation flick.
Here, he is an ex-Green Beret home from 'nam going after the mob thugs that killed his father.
First, he has to get by their secret weapon, Stella Stevens, girlfriend of #2, Rip Torn, a racist that is just seething at the thought of Stevens between the sheets with Brown. And, boy, do they steam up those sheets! That must have been a shock to 70s audiences.
Now, the thugs are not too bright as they try to run Brown down with a Mustang. Don't they know that this former fullback is one of the all time greats in NFL history? Their efforts to catch him in the casino meets with equal disaster as he runs right through them.
Of course, you know Slaughter wins in the end because there is a sequel.
One interesting aspect for the younger folks is the IBM punch card that figures prominently in the film. They probably have never seen one.
