Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The only real novelty in the videotaped 90-minuter Legacy of Blood is its having a largely black cast going through the motions of a plotline that had previously been performed to death by white actors. Moses Gunn stars as Joe Mattingly, a supposedly respectable insurance agent. Short of cash, Joe utilizes the services of a loan shark. Now he's deeply in debt, and time is running out to make good his loan; perhaps a little life-insurance scam is in order. Legacy of Blood was originally telecast in 1974 on the ABC late-night anthology Wide World Mystery.
