Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Lee Grant plays Mrs. Schuster, wife of a recently murdered Manhattan cop. Lt. Schuster died under a cloud, with intimations that the killing was orchestrated by criminals with whom the Lieutenant was chummy. Mrs. Schuster is forced to vindicate her husband, and to try to emotionally reassemble herself. The film is sustained by the powerhouse performance of Lee Grant, backed by such strong supporting players as Jack Warden, Paul Burke and Eartha Kitt. Lieutenant Schuster's Wife is one of the most convincing and compelling directorial jobs of TV-movie workhorse David Lowell Rich.
