  • movie Description
  • Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round is a 1966 crime comedy-drama starring James Coburn as Eli Kotch, a prison inmate who gets out of prison by wooing a female psychologist and immediately breaks parole. His plan is to rob the LA Airport bank on the very day the Russian premier arrives, when the police will be, he hopes, otherwise occupied. Along the way, Eli woos girls, assembles a bunch of hooligans, assumes a string of false identities and even gets married so he can mastermind a series of smaller jobs to raise the funding for his big heist.moreless
