This detective drama, which garnered a crop of extremely bad reviews when it was released in 1972, is notable for many things: its low budget ($25,000), the time it took to film it (two weeks), its decent camerawork, and the fact that it got reviewed at all, given its resolutely independent origins. The story concerns a private investigator with a yen for a nightclub singer, the mistress of a nightclub owner. When she is killed, he tries to find her murderer. The film ends with an extremely bloody shootout.
