Good Given the Limitations It Likely Had to Overcome to Get on Television.
10 February 2006 | by (Newfoundland, Canada) – See all my reviews

When Captain Casey Reardon (played by Harry Guardino) learns that notorious gangster boss Enzo Cortino (Paul Stevens) possesses a secret ledger which could potentially be used to bring him to justice and said ledger is supposedly within the possession of his girlfriend Helena Varga (Louise Sorel), Reardon sends a brash but known for getting results, spirited and spunky young black female detective named Christie Love (Teresa Graves) on undercover assignment hoping she will be able to get to the heart of what makes Helena Varga tick so Ms. Varga will be convinced to co-operate and with her aid and possibly that of Cortino's "ledger", the police will finally be able to bring down Enzo Cortino once and for all.

Well a blaxploitation television movie had to be something somewhat groundbreaking back in 1974. Obviously this couldn't deliver the same level of violent thrills and nudity as was frequently evidenced in blaxploitation films of the period since it originally aired on television and was subject to television limitations in terms of what could and could not be shown. This element made it necessary for the plot to be more detailed than most films in the blaxploitation action vein so the focus here remains more on the mystery as it relates to Ms. Helena Varga's rather elusive past which means we see Christie actually do a surprising amount of detective work in this story. One negative element that affects the overall impact this one has is it's the subject matter seems to be aimed more towards a white audience than a black one and plays more to common expectation of non-blaxploitation detective television series from the time and era.

Personally I feel Teresa Graves does a terrific job here and really manages to convey a lot of information in a relatively short amount of time, enough to make her character one we immediately come to like and root on. All in all, this proves successful both in terms of introducing us to a lead character and providing the basic underlying set-up necessary for a TV series to follow as well as most any other TV Pilot I've ever seen and they must have done something right because a TV Series followed shortly thereafter.
