Sergeant A.M. Valnikov (Robert Foxworth, Prophecy) is a hard-drinking homicide detective transferred to Hollywood’s robbery division. His new partner Natalie Zimmerman (Paula Prentiss, The Parallax View) is a hard-nosed divorcee with no patience for burnt-out cops. And “Terrier King” Philo Skinner (Harry Dean Stanton, Paris, Texas) is a desperate dog groomer who has kidnapped a champion schnauzer for $84,000 in ransom. Together they will track this case through a town of tarnished dreams where crime is never perfect, love is often blind and some people always seem to pick The Black Marble. Barbara Babcock (Chosen Survivors) and Judy Landers (Armed and Dangerous) co-star in this quirky comedy-drama directed by Harold Becker (Sea of Love, Malice) from a screenplay by Joseph Wambaugh (The Choirboys, The Onion Field) based on his best-selling novel, and featuring a score by legendary composer Maurice Jarre (Doctor Zhivago, Lawrence of Arabia) and special appearances by Christopher Lloyd, Michael Dudikoff and James Woods.
