California small town police chief investigates a suspicious death involving the victim's own dog that presumably killed its owner.
Penultimate feature film for Ann Rutherford and her first film in 22 years since Operation Haylift (1950).
Can you imagine coming home, and your wife says she's leaving you for someone else, and you say, "Who, Phil?" and she says, "No. Phyllis."
Abel Marsh: Well, that's the ultimate put-down... to those of us who are normal heterosexuals.
When Abel Marsh is leaving the dog at the Vet's Dog & Cat Hospital, he climbs in his car and drives in a circle in the parking lot, pausing to look at the lonely Doberman, "Murphy", waiting in his pen for another command. As he brings the car to a stop, the bright gold reflection of sunlight suddenly illuminates his face inside the car. The crew had a hard time training the reflector on his moving face as the car swung around and only managed to pick him up once the car had stopped moving.
