The Detective, directed by Gordon Douglas in 1968, is the story of a dedicated police veteran, Joe Leland, whose investigation of the brutal murder of a rich homosexual leads, first to the arrest of a suspect, Felix Tesla, and then, after some blatant coercion, to a confession and execution. Leland gets a promotion, but then finds several links between the murder victim and an accountant, McIver, who has seemingly committed suicide. His investigation leads him to explore his own department, and he unearths widespread corruption across the city. Will his investigation put his career - or even his own life - at risk?

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Jacqueline Bisset, who has her first major starring role in a movie in this film (with special billing), was a late replacement for Mia Farrow. The latter was Frank Sinatra's wife at the time, and he had hoped that co-starring together might help their troubled marriage; but Rosemary's Baby, the film which gave Farrow her most celebrated role, went steeply over schedule and she was unable to take this part. She and Sinatra were divorced soon afterwards.
