A pretty young songbird found murdered on Hollywood Boulevard. The crusty old Private Eye who was in love with her. A smooth-talking seductress who hires him to solve the crime. A bulldog detective with a nose for the truth and a leash held by city hall. A long list of suspects with a long list of alibis. A sprinkling of dirty secrets. A zest of clever lies. These are the ingredients of an homage to the PI films of Hollywood's Golden Age. Written by Belgau, Eric

A truly wonderful movie
2 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a wonderful who-done-it murder mystery that keeps you guessing throughout the film as to who the murderer actually is. The chemistry between actors Ken Butler, playing Detective Joe Patterson, and Ross Hagen, as Joe's former partner and now a P.I., was terrific. The scenery dovetails beautifully with the suspenseful story and helps to create a true sense of the darker side of Hollywood. The music score was also terrific, with its haunting melodies, sleek orchestrations, and a wonderful theme song. What was nice was watching a great murder mystery that didn't have and didn't need any gratuitous sex, violence, or mind numbing chase scenes. This movie was truly wonderful cinematic experience.
