Quotes:
Mrs. Doris Ruston:I'm not your picture of a bereaved widow, am I? You would have preferred someone draped in black and weeping softly to organ music. Frankly, I've got nothing to cry about. Strange, my admitting that to you, the man who killed him. Jim was a blob, a jellyfish... umm, aren't I terrible? Am I any worse than you, ogling his widow? You see, Mr. Valens, you're no more noble than I am - We're two of a kind.See more »

Warning! Warning Shot is only fair, 4 February 2006
Author: kikiloveslegwarmers from United States

What can I say. Just bought the DVD for the all-star cast. Out-dated story of a LA police detective who shoots a Beverly Hills doctor who he claims pulled a gun on him, but no one can find the gun. The rest of the movie shows the detective trying to prove he is not guilty, and that the well-respected doctor was really a bad-guy after all.

Lots of well-known stars in the movie, but the standout is the Elenor Parker who looks very sexy and plays the part of a sexed-up, drunken widow to the tilt. Aside from that, and a few laughs regarding butter milk, this 1966 Who-Done-It is bested viewed on a rainy Saturday afternoon, the one which I'm having right now.
