Hard nosed TV
18 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A gritty no nonsense private eye film that was the pilot for the short-lived series of the same name. Darren McGavin is a p.i. who is hired by film executive Edmond O'Brien to keep tabs on one of his employees. O'Brien wants McGavin to keep any eye on a woman he thinks might be dipping into the company funds. "An easy job that should only take a couple of days", says O'Brien. The case is of course anything but easy. The woman is hanging around with some most unsavory types whose main income seems to be from blackmail. McGavin ends up in the hot seat as the bodies begin to pile up. First the woman he is watching gets the deep six, then O'Brien gets a couple of slugs in the head. McGavin ends up on the wrong end of several beatings, a gun battle and even gets pushed off a cliff in his car. A bad day at the office or what! This comes across as a harder edged version of the same producer's Rockford Files. Directed by Michael Ricthie who gave us that great Lee Marvin film PRIME CUT. A very enjoyable nights entertainment.
