The world's full of pretty girls just like that one. This time next week most of them will still be around. Not one in 10,000 knows what's going to happen tomorrow or a month from tomorrow. Except one that I know of, and she's going to die all alone because I'm going to put her husband in jail, Sir.

"When a small town (sic) hood is murdered, two fresh-out-of-law-school-grads set out to find out the culprit and link the incident to organized crime. David Canary and Robert Pine star as the law grads, whose task gets more complicated (and more dangerous) when their efforts connect a narcotics operation to City Hall and corrupt city politicians. James Olsen stars as their attorney boss, and Elmer Bernstein contributes a moody, suspenseful score. William Shatner appears as 'Deaver Wallace'."
This "NBC Saturday Night Movie" was the pilot for E. Jack Neuman's lawyer series "The Prosecutors".
The DVD sleeve description probably meant "small time hood" as "Incident on a Dark Street" is clearly shot in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Also, the synopsis (quoted above) is slightly inaccurate. Mr. Pine (as Paul Hamilton Jr.) is the lone rookie, handling a subplot instead of the film's major story. The main plot is handled by Mr. Canary (as Peter "Pete" Gallagher). Canary, who made strong impressions with stints on "Peyton Place" and "Bonanza", must have been a leading candidate for his own nighttime series. His twin characterizations on the daytime series "All My Children" are uncommonly strong.
The likewise hard-working Pine and an accomplished Mr. Olson ("Don't call me sir!") round out the cast. The three are fine individual actors, but don't "click" as a team. Wearing thick hair and moustache, Mr. Shatner obviously takes charge of the guest cast list. Silent film veteran Gilbert Roland (as Dominic Leopold), Richard S. Castellano (as Frank Romeo), and Murray Hamilton (Edmund "Ed" Schilling) lend their support. Director Buzz Kulik was best known for "Brian's Song".
**** Incident on a Dark Street (1/13/73) Buzz Kulik ~ David Canary, Robert Pine, James Olson, William Shatner
