In the opening moments of Kill, Panther, Kill! we see the daring escape, during a prison transfer, of master criminal Arthur Tracy. Tracy has been in stir for four years after thieving a fortune in jewels worth three million dollars. Now his loyal henchmen, Anthony and Smokey, lie in wait beside a desolate hillside road thats apparently intended to be overlooking Malibu but is actually some anonymous European location as the LAPD van baring Arthur approaches. After dispensing with Arthurs guards in a hail of machinegun fire, the three pile into a getaway car, at which point Anthony says he knows of an ideal place for them to hold up. Theyre holding a rodeo this week in Calgary, he says. Nobody will look for us there. And truer words were never spoken. The only thing that Id be looking for at a rodeo in Calgary would be a thorough ass-kicking.
