Police detective Joe Leland investigates the murder of a gay man. While investigating, he discovers links to official corruption in New York City in this drama that delves into a world of sex and drugs.
While riding on a bus in Cape Town, South Africa, an unwitting courier named "Candy" (Jacqueline Bisset) has her purse pick-pocketed by a two-bit thief by the name of "Skip McCoy" (James Brolin). Although she is unaware that she is working for the communists she is told that the envelope she was carrying is extremely important and that she needs to get it back at all costs. So she visits certain underworld figures and finally finds a person named "Sam" (Claire Trevor) who can identify the pick-pocket. Unfortunately, when she tries to buy it from him she is told that he wants a great deal more money than what she has on her. Soon Candy, Skip and Sam become deeply involved in a dangerous game of intrigue which threatens to escalate out-of-control. At any rate, rather than detailing the rest of the story and possibly spoiling the movie for those who haven't seen it I will just say that I thought it had a good premise but that it ended up being a bit dry and mundane. While I liked the performances of both Jacqueline Bisset and Claire Trevor I didn't think either of them was given an adequate script to really enhance the overall value of the movie. As a result I rate it as only average.
