Synopsis by Hal Erickson
From Crown International, the Cathedral of Sixties Schlock, came Sidehackers. Ross Hagen stars as a cyclist who meets Michael Pataki at a weekend race. Claire Polan, Pataki's fiancee, throws herself at Hagen, then cries rape when she is turned down. To avenge the "violation" of his girl, Pataki arranges for Hagen's girl to be assaulted and murdered. Hagen gets even. This tender drama of human frailties was originally titled Five the Hard Way.
