The Running Man synopsis

When pilot Rex Black (Laurence Harvey) destroys his plane in a crash the day after his insurance policy expires, the insurance company refuses to give him any money. To strike back at the agency, Rex fakes his death, changes his identity and escapes to Spain, with 50,000 pounds in life insurance money. His wife (Lee Remick) joins him in Spain, but when an insurance investigator (Alan Bates) arrives unexpectedly, Rex's paranoia causes him to flee again.
