Trivia

Originally meant to serve as the pilot for star Richard Widmark's first (and only) television series, "Brock's Last Case" met with indifference at NBC, and the network instead asked Widmark to reprise "Madigan" from the 1968 Universal theatrical film that earned high ratings when telecast on the network. Widmark and Universal agreed, and the star made his TV series bow in the "Madigan" segment of the NBC Wednesday Mystery Movie which aired in the 1972-1973 season. "Brock's Last Case" aired as a "World Premiere Movie" on NBC during the same season. See more »

widmark at his best as a New York cop
20 January 2006 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was recently aired on Channel 5.It is at its best when it is based in New York.Although there is the usual fun when a city dweller goes to the country it starts to run rapidly downhill at this time.The action sequences are to my mind tedious and seem to go on for eternity without really reaching any climax.By the time this film reaches its finale one simply does not care about who is the culprit and his motives.The one thing that shines out of this film is Widmarks professionalism and sheer durability.He was always a favourite of mine.It is a shame that he is now retired and so we have no more Richard Widmark films to look forward to.
