A Crime of Influence: a Screenplay

A CRIME OF INFLUENCE  a screenplay  adapted by  André Jute  from his novel  AN ELECTION OF PATRIOTS  In 1952  In the last titanic struggle for the soul of America  One man has the vision and the power  To do what has to be done  Harry Luce can do his patriotic duty  — and…

The Gauntlet Run is the toughest race ever run by man: across America with every man’s hand turned against you from the statue of Liberty to the old US Mint in San Francisco. There the prize awaits you: $10 million and a full and free Presidential Pardon. 

The Runner is marked for all to see by an indestructible Fist, keyed to his metabolism. If the Fist is removed without the key from the Mint in San Francisco, he dies. Between the Runner and the key stand the ruthless bounty hunters, the Syndicate’s lethal odds fixers, the sinister Organ Bank chasers, the Humble & Poor Hunt, the US Air Force, and mobs of good citizens, all turned into bloodthirsty savages by the magnificent prize for tearing the Fist from the Runner — and the Presidential license that nothing done to the Runner shall be illegal. 

Henty needs two million dollars to send her son Petey to the Artie stericlinic for treatment that will save his life. The care of The Caring Society is exhausted, her chicken farm already carries a second mortgage. Hopeless. But beautiful young Texas widows don’t just give up. There is still the Gauntlet Run. To qualify, you have to be a criminal — so Henty robs a bank...
No woman has ever Run the Gauntlet. No Runner has ever survived the Gauntlet.

Dr Benjamin Pitman on Dakota Franklin

Colonel Jonathan Alford, Director, Institute for Strategic Studies/BBC World at One
