Starring BERNIE CASEY Co-Starring PAM GRIER Screenplay by GEORGE ARMITAGE Based Upon the Novel "Jack's Return Home" by TED LEWIS Produced by GENE CORMAN Directed by GEORGE ARMITAGE METROCOLOR



Gene Corman is a producer who starts trends. And once that trend has taken hold, he is not about to let go. His latest film, Hit Man to be released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, is a case in point. It follows "Cool Breeze," also produced by Corman and released by MGM this past year. The cast of the new contemporary action drama is headed by Bernie Casey and co-stars Pam Grier, Lisa Moore and Bhetty Waldron. George Armitage, who wrote the screenplay, makes his directorial debut with Hit Man

Actually, Corman's trend-setting with black-oriented films goes back over ten years. At that time he produced a motion picture called "The Intruder," which dealt with racial intolerance and injustice in the South. "It exposed the doctrine of hate and prejudice," Corman says, "but it turned out that the film was far ahead of its time." The then-explosive nature of the film kept 'The Intruder' from receiving the exposure it rightfully deserved."

With the excellent response to his "Cool Breeze" this year, Corman felt encouraged to produce another film in the now totally accepted field of black action dramas of today. Hit Man he feels comes into the marketplace at just exactly the right time for all audiences.

"You don't make films for white audiences, and you don't make them for black audiences," Corman says. "You make them for the total audience. In 'Hit Man' I feel we have contemporary action drama which will appeal to all segments of today's motion picture audience. After all, drama is universal. It draws no color lines. If you have a good story to tell, and in 'Hit Man' we have one of the best, it can be told well if you organize a group of talented actors.

"As in 'Cool Breeze,' we were most fortunate in assembling a really top group of actors for the starring roles. With Bernie Casey, the former pro-football great of the Los Angeles Rams, heading the cast, we have other fine performers like Bhetty Waldron and Lisa Moore in top roles, and we were happily able to bring back from 'Cool Breeze' both Pam Grier and Sam Laws."

Gene Corman and his brother, Roger, the producer-director, himself responsible for many outstanding feature pictures two years ago, formed a production company, New World Pictures, which has an average output of approximately ten pictures a year. The two operate together as well as on separate projects of their own.

Gene Corman comes to the ranks of today's busiest producers particularly well prepared for the task. A 1948 graduate of Stanford University, he served as an executive with Music Corporation of America, at that time one of the world's leading talent agencies. As Corman says, "Having been greatly involved in the production and packaging of so many motion pictures, while representing such stars as Joan Crawford, Fred MacMurray, Ray Milland and Harry Belafonte, the move to the other side of the desk and into the active role of a producer seemed a natural evolution."

Corman intends to keep up the fast pace for himself. Following "Cool Breeze" and Hit Man he is now actively planning other contemporary action films to follow them.
