MONGO'S BACK IN TOWN dvd
(aka Running Home)
DIRECTOR: Marvin Chomsky
Based on a book by E. Richard Johnson

SYNOPSIS: Tough guy / killer Mongo (Joe Don Baker) returns to the sewer of a town he once called home to get revenge and crack some skulls in this rare made-for-TV classic. Considering it had to be watered down for television this sleazy, hardboiled, drama still packs a punch. Baker is just plain mean and nasty. Field plays a naive young girl who hooks up with Mongo and gets treated like dirt. Savalas and Sheen are the cops on Mongo's tail and Francis is an old flame. Worth a look!
NOTE: Onscreen title is "Running Home"
