The Mad Bomber

Steel-jawed character actor Chuck Conner stars as a quiet Angelino fed up with the corruption and immorality in his city. So he becomes a lone wolf terrorist – setting off explosives at institutions he judges responsible for his daughter’s death and the social decay around him. It’s up to beleaguered a city detective (Vince Edwards) to find The Mad Bomber before he launches his deadliest attack yet, and the only witness that can help is a reluctant serial sex offender (Neville Brand). This tense procedural both pre-figured and cautioned us about the violent vigilante-ism that would explode across movies creens in the later 70’s. And it probably the most accomplished and mature film from exploitation mainstay Bert I. “Mr. BIG” Gordon.
