A lonely widow hires a young woman as her companion. What she doesn't know is that the woman and her boyfriend are extortionists, who are planning on making her their next victim, then killing her when they get her money.
Very risqué TV content for the 1970's. Stella Stevens plays a detective investigating the murder of a crippled woman. Seems that the victim was sleeping around-- making for several suspects including a black guy, a bisexual man and a married cop. Robert Vaughn playing a gay man and a very young Bruce Boxleitner as a bisexual hustler is quite something for it's day. The performances are all good and the storyline is typical 70's mystery/police drama (except for the gay content). Interesting mainly because the film depicts the time period with all the various prejudices and stereotypes. Stella Stevens once again proves that she can take on serious drama as well as light comedy. Her sexy look is downplayed for the role, but she's still a beauty. Love those 70's TV movies of the week!
