Superchick (1973)

Superchick stars Joyce Jillson as Tara B. True – an attractive hostess with Crown International Airlines who has a boyfriend in each of the cities she visits regularly.

In New York, she has Ernest (Thomas Reardon), a witty, mature, sophisticated, wealthy brain surgeon. In Miami, there’s Johnny (Tony Young), the young, athletic beach type, and in Los Angeles, there’s Davey (Timothy Wayne Brown), the young rock superstar. He’s supposed to be the creative type.

They all share one thing in common besides Tara in that they all want to marry her. Being the free spirit she is, she declines all their offers, preferring to keep things they way they are.

Tara’s Miami boyfriend, Johnny, owes money for some bad bets made at the dog track, but the gangsters agree to forgo the money if Johnny gets Tara to carry a package of guns on the plane.

Their plan revolves around a mob courier carrying a large sum of cash from a casino in the Bahamas to Las Vegas. They plan to hijack the plane, steal the cash, and retire to Mexico.
