Models as mules
23 May 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One top fashion model is killed and another is in some serious danger as she tries to break free from her life as cover girl by day. Because in order to live in the high style she's accustomed to Jaclyn Smith before she became an angel for Charley she's a drug mule for racketeer Bradford Dillman.

Dennis Weaver gets into the case quite accidentally when he breaks up a shoot Smith was having in Central Park. That gives him an entry into Smith's life as the NYPD investigates both the heroin trafficking and the disappearance of Smith's friend.

McCloud after the body of her friend is discovered and its now a homicide levels with her and tries to get Smith out. There's a nice final sequence at the sight of the former World's Fair in Flushing Meadows. He rather neatly traps Dillman.

No Diana Muldaur in this McCloud story. I'm sure she wouldn't take kindly to Sam McCloud with the future Charley's Angel.
