Tough Guys [a.k.a. Three Tough Guys] (1974)


An ex-con priest, Father Charlie (Lino Ventura), and a framed ex-police officer, Lee (Isaac Hayes), are on the hunt for a murderer that is in search of one million dollars that is missing from a heist. One of the murdered victims' girlfriend, Fay (Paula Kelly), is believed to know where the loot is, so she looks to an arcade and bar owner, Joe Snake (Fred Williamson), to help her evade the people that are trying to kill her.
