Murder by Contract

Vince Edwards plays a hitman-for hire; he’s cool, calm, and always prepared… until he’s tasked with murdering a high-profile mob witness. The issue isn’t that he’s sentimental that his target is a woman, it’s that women are harder to kill. And when this contract killer appears to be coming up short, he’ll soon discover that his trusted associates are now out to snuff him. Irving Lerner’s hypnotic Murder by Contract is a razor-sharp noir thrill ride that Martin Scorsese acknowledges as a major influence on Taxi Driver.
