Storyline is A marathon runner gets caught up in his brothers wrong doings! He gets kidnapped and tortured ! And put through hell! As they try to make him talk. This digest never let's up! Fast Paced! A Real Crowd Pleaser! Review by Leon Norris.

I agree, Leon. This three parter cuts to the action. I've had this for years. I like it better than the feature. Feature had too many subplots and dull in areas. My color has lost 50-60%; but soft as the other Marketing three parters I have. Even with an Elmo 1.1 lens (or if I had a schneider) would still be soft.

John, my print is nice! Not real sharp! And the color is not bad!But being a masked print helps!

Most of the earlier 3 parters aren't sharp. I must have seen 7 or 8 three parters over the years. I think Escape from Alcatraz was one of the sharper ones.

That full feature is a gem to have David. Especially if the colours are still good. Only ever had the three parter myself.
