Storyline

When a private detective (a partner of an ex-cop) is murdered, Kojak gets involved. The victim's girlfriend (Jocelyn Mayfair) is now a target because she saw the killer. Kojak is attacked when he traces the girlfriend's apartment, which leads to Phil Breen (Jocelyn's husband). Kojak also needs to find the records cop who is feeding info to the ex-cop as well as blackmailing now-respectable citizens. When the records cop is killed, Kojak finally is able to catch the murderer. Written by jeaneva

Goofs

At the beginning Larry is shown counting the money in the envelop which contains five $1,000 bills. All bills over $100 were withdrawn from circulation in the mid 1960's, and those bills would have been non-negotiable. See more »

The stuff dreams are made of
17 November 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This particular Kojak story involves Telly Savalas assuming the guise of a private detective when one is in fact shot dead in his office. His partner in fact is a former NYPD detective who went to the Academy with Kojak.

The deceased was going through a divorce shedding Morgan Fairchild for Angel Tompkins. We should all have such choices. By the way Morgan as the odd woman out in the affair has one unforgettable scene.

With Kojak as a PI the story starts resembling The Maltese Falcon. Especially with Kathleen Freeman also unforgettable as Ms. Wonderly a much put upon used car saleswoman.

Also about halfway through with the viewer noticing the familiarity to The Maltese Falcon you'll see who the murderer. In fact there is actually two of them.

I'm surprised Savalas never did a Sam Spade type part in a feature film.
