Not a great film, but a really good one

This film is great because Sammy, a private eye, doesn't take himself too seriously and the dialogue uses a number of cliches from the 60's. Sammy is searching for a girl who doesn't want to be found. I especially love the scenes between Sammy and Roy Glenn, the veteran actor who plays his dad, a police lieutenant.
