Good made-for-TV thriller involving the murder of a visiting priest Regis Cordic on the Golden Gate Bridge that everyone but his nurse Susannah York believes is a suicide. Nun York's resolve causes the San Francisco police to assign a defiant David Janssen to investigate. Janssen and York display wonderful chemistry working together to unravel the crime which eventually allows their characters to soften and let their hair down. There's a fair amount of overacting by Janssen and his boss Tim O'Conner but York is perfect in her role. The lack of run time doesn't allow any of the supporting cast to have their characters get developed. It's a good story though and there's great suspense as the movie builds to the climax. However, the saccharine ending was over the top and spoiled the realism of the rest of the movie. Nevertheless, it's still recommended especially for fans of Janssen and York.
