"...The film proves to be one of Hopper's more persuasive efforts..."
Fueled by Dennis Hopper's fascination with the art world, the film stars Jodie Foster as artist Ann Benton. When she happens to witness a mob assassination, capo Lino Avoca (Vincent Price) hires hit man Milo (Dennis Hopper) to take care of her. As Milo researches Ann's life in his efforts to locate the fugitive--who is also sought by the cops--he becomes increasingly interested in her. When he finds her, he makes an offer: either die or become his property.
