Big-game hunter Roy Thinnes is hired to track down bank robbery suspect William Smith. While on the job, Thinnes becomes emotionally involved with Smith's wife, Sandra Dee. The climactic showdown takes place in the swamps of Louisiana. Filmed in 1968, Manhunter was slated for a 1969 theatrical release, but didn't show up until 1972, and then on British television. The film made its American network-TV debut April 3, 1976-by which time bit player Foster Brooks had become a major comedy star, thus his billing status on the credits was considerably improved. Also appearing is trumpeter Al Hirt, as "himself".
