Pretty good for a case without Mason!!
3 July 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is a really well done film! The plot storyline was well done and fine acting by Holbrook, Hale, and Moses as well as the guest cast!MacKenzie and Malansky try to solve the murder of a movie star, and Malansky finds himself in serious danger a few times. Good thing "Wild Bill" MacKenzie arrives to bail him out twice! Whew!
