****SPOILERS**** In a role he would do four years later on the TV series Mr. Novak James Franciscus as NYPD Det. James Halloran goes under cover as a teacher for mentally disturbed and unruly students in a tough New York City 600 school. That's to uncover a murder that happened there when a teacher Mr. Paxton was savagely knifed and thrown from his fifth floor school room window to his death.

It doesn't take long for Mr. Halloran to see who's been causing all the trouble in the classroom who happens to be the biggest as well as mentally challenged "Studant" in the class Fred "Flip" Willer, Robert Morris. By first taking Flip's intimidation of himself make the big bully challenge Mr. Halloran to to fist fight where, after class, he knocks him out cold with one punch!

Knowing he doesn't have a chance in a one on one confrontation with Mr. Halloran Flip tries to recruit his fellow "Studants" to do the job for him by beating and possibly murdering , like Flip did to Mr. Paxton, Mr. Halloran for dissing him and his "Manhood".

As Mr. Halloran was to find out is that Flip's problem was that he was unwanted at birth and left at the church house steps by his mom and who's dad passed away, possibly from acute alcoholism, soon after he was born.

In was in the final confrontation with Flip that Mr. Halloran uses a bit of psychology in faking he's afraid of the big as well as brainless bully to have he drop his guard when he really lets him have it, with a school book between his eyes, and makes the guy realize that he's the both stupid and murderous jerk that he really is.

In the end Flip is made to pay for his crime, the murder of Mr. Paxton,by being sent to juvenile prison as well has having his anti social attitude and behavior treated by experts, professional head shrinker's, so when he's fully recovered he'll be fit to live a normal life in a civilized society.
