Directed by George Armitage, Hit Man follows Tyrone Tackett (Bernie Casey), an Oakland hit man who comes to Los Angeles after his brother Cornell is murdered. It is based on the 1970 novel Jack’s Return Home by Ted Lewis (which was also made as 1971’s Get Carter with Michael Caine and its 2000 remake starring Sylvester Stallone ). During production Armitage encouraged the cast to improvise the majority of the dialogue you hear in the movie.
Upon his arrival back home, Tackett is shocked to discover his niece Rochelle (Candy All) has been forced into pornography. He offers her a place to stay but she refuses. Sadly she is later murdered!
Tackett seeks revenge, aiming to kill everyone directly involved, and soon a trail forms beginning with a porn star named Gozelda, (Pam Grier), theater owner Theatis Oliver (Ed Cambridge), his childhood idol Julius Swift (Rudy Challenger), and evil mob boss Nano Zito (Don Diamond).
Keep you eyes peeled for Carmen Argenziano, Roger E. Mosley, and Paul Gleason in early roles!
