Private eye P.J. is reluctant when he gets a new job: he shall protect Maureen Preble, mistress of millionaire Orbeson, mainly from attacks by his wife and her greedy family. In truth Orbeson plans a deadly intrigue in which P.J. is to play a central part. Meanwhile P.J. falls in love with Maureen and Orbeson's money.

This is probably the best, and weirdly enough, rarest film George Peppard ever made. It was his second of three films with director John Guillermin, after the excellent The Blue Max and before the somewhat disappointing House of Cards.

To be honest it's difficult to describe just how good this film is - tough, action-packed, with a grim, downbeat atmosphere, it's probably the best detective film of the sixties - it's therefore no surprise that it's as rare as rocking horse shit.

The cast includes a really menacing Raymond Burr, the lovely Gayle Hunnicutt, Brock Peters, Susan Saint James, Wilfred Hyde-White, Coleen Gray, Jason Evers, Severn Darden and Herb Edelman. Music by Neal Hefti.

This comes from a good quality first generation VHS, and the print is uncut, including the memorable subway sequence that was cut from a lot of TV airings.

    Thanks for that! Do you also have "House of Cards" in WS, by any chance? Would like to see that one again, too. Thank you.
