Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Jack Palance must have been in 375 movies in the early 1970s. In Rulers of the City, Palance shares star billing with another "take the money and run" veteran Edmund Purdom. The two stars don't have as much screen time as the nominal male lead Al Cliver, however. The story is the old one about the young gangster who seeks vengeance for his father's murder. He insinuates himself into the upper circles of organized crime,then waits until the proper time to strike.
