- A Tribute by a Die Hard Fan

You Can Say That Again

     Jerry Stevens is an out-of-work, bit-part movie actor, with several lousy westerns to his credit. He is offered a thousand dollars a day to impersonate John Merrill Ferguson, one of the richest and most powerful men in the world. Ferguson's seventy year old mother, Harriet,  explains that her son,  the real Ferguson,  needs to complete a secret deal and  the world press is always watching his moves. So Ferguson need a  stand-in. But things are never so simple. The previous stand-in had been found dead... Duvier, the make-up artist, who disguises Stevens as Ferguson is also found dead. The real Ferguson's wife, sultry Loretta, who confides to Stevens and suspects her mother-in-law, is also murdered. Jerry begins to suspect that the real Ferguson is either dead, or a prisoner, somewhere  in his own house. Can a seventy-year old woman be so ruthless?? An unusual plot..
