Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Dan August: The Jealousy Factor relates two stories of two dead men, whose murders are passed off as crimes of random violence. In both instances, detective August (Burt Reynolds) deduces that jealousy rather than happenstance may have been at the bottom of the crime. The most suspicious case is the death of a wealthy man allegedly killed by a burglar, with Janice Rule guest-starring as a markedly nonmournful widow. Offered as a "TV movie" in the late 1970s, The Jealousy Factor was actually comprised of two separate episodes from the 1971-72 TV series Dan August.
