****SPOILERS*** It's when NYPD Det. Bane, Eli Wallach, gunned down a defenseless, he was out of bullets, career hood Gimpy, Peter Falk, after he himself was on the run after shooting one of New York's finest or men in blue, policemen, his shocked partner the very concerned and ultra sensitive for life, human or otherwise, Det. Adam Flint, Paul Burke, wanted to have nothing to do with him. Not willing to stick his neck out and being a rat, in cop lingo, by reporting Bane's crime to internal affairs Flint is convinced by his boss Let.Mike Parker, Horace McMahon, to keep an eye on him and catch Det. Bane in the act in order to have him arrested and prosecuted for any future crimes.

It's not long that Det. Bane is back in action in planning a robbery of Saint Nick's Arena during a, how low can you go, charity boxing match with up and coming middleweight champion contender the boy scout like and milk drinking Tony Bacallas, George Maharis. As we soon learn Tony has a couple of skeletons in his closet or locker room that Let. Bane is using to blackmail him with. Let. Bane is also blackmailing a number of other people to do his dirty work that are in one way or another connected with Tony's big upcoming fight who's profits, a cool $100,000.00, their planning to rip off!

***SPOILERS*** Unknown to Det. Bane's blackmailed partners in crime he plans to take off with the entire bundle, the 100's G's, and leave them high & dry. That's after they help him pull the robbery off. And that after he murders those involved in getting the money secured in the Saint Nick's safe including one of his accomplices the arena's book keeper Lia played by Jan Miner in a miner role. It's the honest and tortured Tony Bacollas who's supposed to hit his opponent below the belt, to distract the police, who freaks out and ruins Det. Bane's entire master plan. That's by him blowing the whistle, as well as the boxing match, by alerting the police that includes the kind & sensitive Let. Flint to what's going on! That has Flint totally out of character and against his better judgment as well as moral ethics "Thou shall not kill" stop Bane in his tracks by, after Bane first shot and wounded Tony, gunning him down all by himself! Welcome to the real world Det. Adam Flint!
