Goofs

While 1963 gas prices at gas stations was correctly shown on station billboards as being 25 cents, the boards all read 025. In 1963, no one believed gas prices would ever hit a dollar. Most gas pumps could not even sell gas for over 99 cents, so gas prices would never be displayed with a "0" before the 25. See more »

A pretty good start
7 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This TV movie that was a prelude to the two season running series of the same name. And what a great moody start it was. All of the acting is top notch. Dennis Farina will always be remembered as Lt. Torello, in my mind at least. Micheal Mann produced 2 shows in the '80's Miami Vice and Crime Story. Miami Vice was a huge hit, Crime Story wasn't. That's a real shame as THIS was definately the better of the two. If you like cop shows, the TV movie is available on DVD with the complete first season & it's VERY MUCH worth getting.

My Grade: A
