Storyline

Sgt. Joe Friday is called back from vacation to work with his partner, Off. Bill Gannon, on a missing persons case. Two amateur female models and a young war widow have vanished, having been last seen with one J. Johnson. In the course of tracking down Johnson and the young ladies, the detectives wind up with two different descriptions of the suspect, one of which closely resembles a dead body found in a vacant lot. But the dead man, later identified as Charles LeBorg of France, proves not to be J. Johnson, when a third young model disappears. Written by Michael J. Hayde <mmeajv@earthlink.net>

Sgt. Joe Friday: Let's go, Markell, you're going downtown.
Ricky Markell: I ain't gonna talk to you there, either.
Sgt. Joe Friday: Well now, you don't have to. Shelton copped out, told me the whole story, he said you stabbed the guy and shot him three times, once in the right temple.
Ricky Markell: Max didn't tell you that!
Sgt. Joe Friday: He said it was your show, all he did was throw the mustard power in his face, just wanted to roll him, but you were so geed up you had to cut him open.
Ricky Markell: Maxie's a liar!

Fans of the Series Will Enjoy This Effort
19 February 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I'd never heard of this made-for-TV film and was fortunate enough to catch a broadcast on TV and I must say, it was very well done! I've been a fan of the 60s/70s series with Webb and Morgan and this is very much along the same vein, but better in that it's expanded and more in depth than the usual 30 minute episodes could ever be. I'd definitely say if you were or are a fan of the 60s/70s series, this is a film you'd enjoy. Many of the usual familiar faces are included in this film and it's a lot like revisiting old friends. Worth a look-see!
