"When I'm paid for a job, I deliver"
17 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

Lila Bradley walks into Richard Diamond's office and he immediately takes notice – she's beautiful, of course. She announces that she wants to hire him as a body guard for a young lady named Jolie, just in from Paris. She gives Diamond three days' advance pay and asks him to meet her that night at 9:00 at the Hotel Trenton so that he can get acquainted with Jolie. When Diamond arrives, he finds Lt. Kile already there. Lt. Kile introduces Diamond to Jolie, a French poodle.

Soon after, Diamond gets a visit from a Mr. Lattimer, who wants to make sure that he can handle showing the prized French poodle at an upcoming dog show. He's also contacted by a woman who's looking for "a package" that she thinks Ms. Bradley left with Diamond. Three murders later, the whole thing wraps up tidily as usual. David Janssen as Richard Diamond is suave, charming, funny, and handy with his fists.
