Night of the Juggler is a 1980 American action-thriller film starring James Brolin.[4][5]

Plot summary[edit]

A former cop (James Brolin), aligns with a street smart young clerk from the New York City dog pound (Julie Carmen) on a harrowing search for his daughter who is kidnapped by a psychopath (Cliff Gorman) after being mistaken for a wealthy man's daughter. His search is met with obstacles as he runs afoul of the police in his pursuit, including a former corrupt colleague bent on revenge against him. Meanwhile, the kidnapper is just as prepared to kill anybody, including his young hostage, unless his colossal ransom demands are met.
