good 80's Made for TV Movie
7 January 2003 | by (Long Island, New york) – See all my reviews

Film is set in the 1940's with George Peppard investigating a series of murders. George plays his character as if he were doing Banacek, or Hanabal Smith. He does on of his old proverb routines, reminiscent of Banacek, making this a fun, good 80's enjoyable TV movie.
