To Live and Die in L.A.
Release: November 01, 1985

Rick/Eric Masters is a murderous counterfeitor. Federal Agent Richard Chance has been tracking him for quite a while now. When Masters murders Chance's partner, Richard will stop at nothing to get revenge. This movie is probably most notable for a violent twist ending that shocked audiences and the executives at MGM/UA.

Chance: "(Looking at a Wrong Way sign on the freeway) We're going this way!"
Newscaster: "(Over the chaos on the freeway) There's a minor tie-up on the North Long Beach near Henry Ford. A couple of cars have tangled in traffic there. Shouldn't take too long to get this to the shoulder. A very simple affair, no injuries involved. Shouldn't cost you more than a couple of minutes, though, if you're heading North bound on 17."
