Fatal Beauty is a 1987 action film about a narcotics officer who must stop the distribution of a dangerous strain of crack known as Fatal Beauty. Rita Rizzoli (Whoopi Goldberg) is a narcotics officer who comes across a dangerously pure type of crack during a drug bust. Before everyone can be arrested, however, two criminals, Leo Nova (Brad Dourif) and Earl Skinner (Mike Jolly) steal the crack and disappear. Rizzoli begins investigating the theft and suspects that a man named Conrad Kroll (Harris Yulin) is behind it. Although they are initially enemies, Rizzoli ultimately becomes close with Kroll's bodyguard, Mike Marshak (Sam Elliot), who begins to assist her in the Fatal Beauty investigation. As bodies begin to pile-up across town from overdosing on the lethal drug, Rizzoli becomes desperate to catch the criminals responsible. Eventually, Rizzoli and Marshak must put their lives on the line to stop both the drug trade and the men responsible for it.
