The Bird's the Word!
15 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

***SOILERS*** Interrupted from a evening of fun & games with his hot & sexy lady friend Edie Hart, Lola Albright, private eye Peter Gunn, Craig Stevens, gets the shocking news that his good friend Let. Jocoby, Herschel "The Bird" Bernardi, has been kidnapped right out of the police station by hood Burt Fisher, Jahn Lawrence. It's Fisher who threatens to murder him if his convicted murderer brother is executed at 11:00 PM that evening! With only a few hours left to save Let. Jocoby's life Gunn guns to down the city's jazz scene, Fisher's old hangout, to find out from some of Fisher's associates just where he hangs out when he's not there and where he may be holding the kidnapped Jocoby hostage.

It's when the messed up in the face Dean, Pete Candoli, the trumpet player refuses to cooperate with Gunn on Fisher's whereabouts he's rewarded by Fisher by having him blasted for ironically keeping his mouth shut not opened! Gunn finally gets some results when he gives jazz night club owner Chino Amalo, Richard Bakolyan, the business, in working him over, where he finally finds out where his good friend Let. Jocoby is being held; In some out of the way cabin in the woods.

***SPOILERS**** With Gunn and the police bearing down on him and his gang Fisher is gunned down while trying to escape the police ambush with Let. Jocoby found safe and sound, without a scratch on him, reading the sports pages not realizing what all the fuss as well as shooting was all about. When we finally see Jocoby he looks like he didn't have a care in the world much less being in fear of losing his life!
