Black Sunday is the powerful story of a Black September terrorist group attempting to blow up a Goodyear blimp hovering over the Super Bowl stadium with 80,000 people and the president of the United States in attendance.
Crime boss Uncle Frank (Edmond O'Brien) and rival crime boss Big Eddie (Bradford Dillman) decide the city is too small or not big enough for two crime bosses, so one of them must go. It's a fight to the death with gang members winding up at the bottom of the river encased in cermet foot-ware, chewed up by the garbage detail, bombed out or machine gunned down. They import help. Uncle Frank hires profession killer Harry Crown (Richard Harris) and pays him 100 G's to rub out Big Eddie, and the latter sends for Marvin "Claw" Zuckerman (Chuck Connors), a sadistic and demented killer, who is one hand short of having two hands.

The title describes this dud
When a hit man is hired to cap a fellow crime boss all stupidity breaks loose. I can't say it was a total dog because I actually enjoyed the thing, but it was a little too ridiculous for my taste.
