Comments

A visual feast for mystery genre fans This film is a fine example of the classic mystery film, such as The Maltese Falcon, updated in color.Rich atmosphere surrounds all the characters. The cast, including Frederic Forrest, Peter Boyle, Marilu Henner!, Elisha Cook, Lydia Lei, do well.It's not perfect, but certain worth a looksee on a dark, foggy night.A solid 9 from me.
