One Shoe Makes it Murder
20 July 1999 | by Coxer99See all my reviews

A tired Mitchum stars in this murder mystery about a Las Vegas casino owner who enlists the help of an out of practice private eye to find his missing wife. Lies, deception and murder follow in a routine fashion. For die hard mystery fans only.
