Storyline

Peter Gunn investigates the murder of Scarlotti, a mobster who once saved the detective's life. The primary suspect appears to be Fusco, who has taken over. In the middle of the case, an unclothed woman calling her self Samantha shows up at Gunn's apartment. The investigation gets grizzlier as it goes on, including the bombing of Mother's, one of Gunn's hangouts. Finally, Fusco gives Gunn a deadline to prove the mobster didn't kill Scarlotti - or else Gunn will be killed. Written by Bill Koenig

Trivia

Blake Edwards intended originally simply to produce this film, with William Friedkin directing. Friedkin turned it down because he disliked the script - something writer William Peter Blatty reminded him of after they had later collaborated successfully on "The Exorcist". See more »

Totally forgotten but excellent detective/mystery film.
30 July 1999 | by (Bozeman, Montana) – See all my reviews

This movie is based on the very popular 1960's TV show "Peter Gunn." It was an early Blake Edwards effort that was unfortunately made three or four years too late. The film industry was already following the mood of the viewing public into the era of "relevance." Up against films like "The I.P.C.R.I.S. File" and "The Spy Who Came In From The Cold" it seemed lightweight and trivial. Too bad, because this film is clever, witty, well cast, well acted, well directed, well paced, well filmed, well edited and has a superb Henry Mancini score that is as good as movie music gets.

"Gunn" is also a very good detective movie with a plot that is far above the average, as good as any Dashal Hammit story.

"Gunn" is also Blake Edwards dress rehearsal for the "Pink Pnather." Using "TV Actors" and in-your-face Mid-60's Los Angelas waterfront locations, Edwards created a low budget film with a high budget look and feel. If it were released today it would easily rival "Pulp Fiction" and "Get Shorty" for box office and critical honors.

If you want to see where "The Pink Panther" came from, or if you want to see what the early 60's in L.A. really looked like, or if you just want to see one of the best detective movies ever made, then take a look at "Gunn."
