Man Against the Mob: The Chinatown Murders brings back the character of police Sgt. Frank Doakey (George Peppard) in this made-for-television movie where an honest cop fights against gangsters in 1940s Los Angeles. In this sequel to Man Against the Mob, Doakey is assigned to investigate the murder of a bum down on the docks. Before long, more bodies start to appear, including the bodies of beautiful Chinese girls. Doakey uncovers sex trafficking by the mobsters who control Chinatown, though the people of the community refuse to cooperate and help him gather evidence. Aging nightclub owner Betty Starr (Ursula Andress) attempts to stall his investigation with flirts and threats. Peppard, of A-Team fame, brings his patented moxie to the role. The movie originally aired in December 1989, made in the neo-noir crime style getting ready to explode on to the entertainment scene in the mid-1990s. It was directed by Michael Pressman and produced by Von Zerneck Sertner Films.
