Good detective story
Tony Franciosa plays here in HARPER - Paul Newman - mode in this solid TV detective yarn. Typical of the sixties, with the jazzy sweet atmosphere. Don't get a headache to fully understand the story, as many private eyes tales. Focus instead on performances and - I know I repeat - the atmosphere. Looks like a CHICAGO DEADLINE remake, with so many supporting but all known actors with the likes of Jay C Flippen, George MacReady, Nicolas Colosanto, Robert Duvall...I am surprised that no one has commented it yet. Maybe it is hard to find. actually Tony Franciosa is a reporter here, instead a gumshoe, but what's the difference?

One good Stuart Rosenberg early piece of work. Good performances and good cast too.
