In New York City's Spanish Harlem, detectives Madigan and Bonaro are given 72 hours by their superior to capture a hoodlum wanted for homicide in Brooklyn.
Both Richard Widmark and Jack Warner play policemen who get killed in a feature film (Widmark in "Madigan" and Warner in The Blue Lamp (1950)) and then reprise the same role in a TV series, Widmark in Madigan (1972) for Universal TV and Warner in Dixon of Dock Green (1955) for the BBC.
Det. Daniel Madigan:
I'm in love with Julia.
Jonesy: Who's asking for love?
Both detectives draw their service revolvers in the back room of the bar before confronting Benesch. But when they enter the bar, the guns are back in their holsters and they unclip them again.
