Bill Cosby and Robert Culp ("I Spy") are united again as private eyes in this Walter Hill-scripted "film noir." Searching for a missing girl, they find themselves involved with vicious criminals and precipitating a string of deaths.
The story of two step-brothers, raised by their father, the chief of police, in a small Oregon lumber town. One brother is hard-working, always within the law, the other a 'rogue.' When gold dust comes up missing from a crime scene, brother is pitted against brother and the father sides against one of the brothers. Written by

I had hoped this might prove to be a decent movie but it wasn't. The production values and sound effects and staging of this movie are at about the level of an early 1950's Superman TV program - only the color (at least in the print I watched) has shifted to a nice shade of yellow-orange. Maybe this film could have been better if it didn't shriek 'cheap! cheap! cheap!' at every turn, but it does. Save your time and watch something else. It does have one interesting aspect, though - this is one of the very few movies I have ever seen where the opening credits say 'and introducing... (someone - in this case, Peter Graves)' where you actually heard from the person again later. Usually, when a movie credit says "... and introducing..." you never hear from the person again. It's a miracle that this movie didn't turn Peter Graves into a truck driver.
