In 1970s Los Angeles, a mismatched pair of private eyes investigate a missing girl and the mysterious death of a porn star.
The script is loosely based on a 1973 pulp novel, Blue Murder, in the Michael Shayne series, by prolific writer Robert Terrall, who used the pen name Brett Halliday for those books.

When they arrive to the house party, Holland March goes to the bar to grab a drink. In the background there is a bottle of gin, which the label has been partially removed. Because that bottle has an unique shape, plus the remaining of a bit of the label, you can see that is Beefeater 24, a gin created in 2008.
In the censored version, bikinis were put on for many of the nudity scenes. The opening did not include a center spread and the naked body of Misty Mountains.
