Greed. Extortion. Revenge.
Based on Elmore Leonard's exciting bestseller, director John Frankenheimer's star-filled 52 Pick-Up evokes the chilling reminder that if you have a lot, you have a lot to lose... Life is good for Los Angeles entrepreneur Harry Mitchell (Roy Scheider) - business is great, his home is beautiful, and his wife (Ann-Margret) just might land a seat on the city council. But Harry's life suddenly spins out of control when a trio of pornographers, led by the ruthless Alan Raimy (John Glover), shows up with a video of Harry in bed with his mistress (Kelly Preston). And when Harry goes on the offensive and tried to pit one blackmailer against the other, the tension mounts - as does the possibility of murder.
