A Feel-Good Story, Led By "Stavros"
23 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This turned out to be a very nice Christmas story, with several crimes stories highlighted. In each, the cops of Manhattan South show their humanity. Especially thoughtful and courteous is "Stavros" (George Savalas). A nice guy to start with, he comes across and extremely kind and patient in this story.

Anyway, the cops have to find both a jealous husband who wants to kill his wife and a missing man who is down on his luck but might explode and shoot someone, according to his compassionate girlfriend.

All, a nice combination of a crime story and melodrama that should leave you with a good feeling.
