With Flowers For Matty, Telly Savalas bid farewell to his career role of NYPD Detective Theo Kojak now moved up to the rank of inspector for the feature
films. In a corrupt post Watergate Kojak was that rare commodity, an incorruptible cop.
In this film Kojak is put on a case involving some stolen art from society folks.
These are movers and shakers and it irks him to be working on this when a detective friend of his Eddie Jones has been killed leaving widow Barbara Barrie and a young son.
Little does he know at first, but the two cases are connected and the whole
picture involves a really corrupt Internal Affairs cop Tom Atkins, an Irish
emigre Donald Moffat and daughter Glynnis O'Connor and the provisional
Irish Republican Army.
Standing out in the cast is Richard Lynch an IRA contract killer who's the one
doing in a lot of people. This is a great portrayal to whole gallery of psycho
killers that Lynch seems to specialize in on the big and small screen.
This was a good farewell for Kojak. We could use a lot of Kojaks on any police
