It's "Night of the Following Day", 1968, starring Marlon Brando and Richard Boone. I don't exactly know that novel is that, I don't have a White bibliography at hand (and there seems to be none in the net), but maybe someone here knows. Bill C.?

Some of you might remember that I speculated earlier that Donald Westlake might've had Cornfield's film in mind when he wrote the Parker novel, "Plunder Squad".
