TV-14 | | Crime, Drama, Thriller
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.
After years of rejecting offers to star in a TV series, Richard Widmark finally succumbed to Universal and NBC-TV's offer for a series. The pilot, Brock's Last Case (1973). was rejected, however, and Widmark was asked to play Madigan in a segment of the NBC Wednesday Mystery Movie during the 1972-73 season. The series was canceled after one season despite usually finishing in the top 30 of the Nielsen ratings.
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.
