Day 48: Good Guys Wear Black (1978)

IMG_4698For today’s Ass Whoopin Wednesday film, I decided to check out another film from one of my favorite action stars in Chuck Norris (Missing In Action). I decided to check out one of the early Norris films in 1978’s Good Guys Wear Black which sees Norris as former special forces Major John T. Booker. The United States in the film was in the middle of peace talks with Vietnam, but for some reason they believed there were still POW’s. So, Booker along with his team known as The Black Tigers are sent on a mission, but everything goes wrong as the guys were set up. Fast forward five years later and everything is normal in Booker’s life until a reporter named Maggie (Anne Archer) shows up. The next thing you know, the surviving members of John’s team are being killed off one by one. So, John decides to investigate and get to the bottom of it before it’s curtains for him. The film also stars James Franciscus (Beneath The Planet of The Apes) as Conrad Morgan, Lloyd Haynes (The Greatest) as Murray Saunders, Dana Andrews (Laura) as Edgar Harolds, Soon-Teck Oh (The Man With The Golden Gun) as Mhin, and the film was directed by Ted Post (Magnum Force).
