Detective, The


USA 1968, 114 minutes
Dir. Gordon Douglas
Rating: [M]
Genres: Classics, Suspense/Crime / Policier


Aroview: Interestingly dark and unsentimental policier has Frank Sinatra play an embattled cop investigating the murder of a wealthy homosexual while trying to stitch his marriage back together. Mostly succeeds as a tough look at the perils of the gay subculture in 1960s New York and Sinatra is agreeably hardboiled himself. Based on the novel by Raymond Thorpe.
