Directed by Richard T. Heffron
From Richard T. Heffron, the director of Trackdown, Futureworld, Foolin’ Around and I, the Jury, comes this action-packed thriller starring George Peppard (The Groundstar Conspiracy, P.J.) as an honest L.A. cop battling criminals and corrupt policemen in his own precinct. Caught between crime rings and their own superiors, most cops would play it by the book—but Newman (Peppard) wrote his own. Newman is a no-nonsense inner-city detective who will stop at nothing to clear his name when a gang of international dope peddlers frame him for bribery and murder. Once on the vengeance trail, Newman faces death at every turn, as his enemies attempt to put the self-appointed judge, jury and executioner in their gun sights. Co-starring Roger Robinson (Willie Dynamite), Eugene Roche (Foul Play), Gordon Pinsent (Away from Her), Abe Vigoda (TV’s Barney Miller), Michael Lerner (Busting) and Mel Stewart (Trick Baby), this badass ’70s actioner offers a gritty look at real justice—known on the street as Newman’s Law.
