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.
Commissioner Anthony X. Russell:
What am I supposed to do with that?
Chief Insp. Charles Kane: Commissioner, I thought you'd never ask.
When Madigan is interrogating Hughy in the theatre Don Stroud's long strangely hair combed across his forehead changes with the different angle shots, the wispy dangler comes and goes and then his bangs are suddenly well combed at the end of the scene.
