The First Deadly Sin is a 1980 crime thriller directed by Brian G. Hutton. The film follows New York Police Sergeant Edward Delaney (Frank Sinatra) who is torn between tracking down a serial killer and taking care of his ailing wife, Barbara (Faye Dunaway), whose kidney disease has deteriorated after an operation. Delaney is approaching retirement and is growing increasingly depressed. To escape, he throws himself into his work. Delaney recruits a museum curator, Dr. Bernardi (George Coe), who happens to be the husband of one of the victims, to help him identify the weapon. Matching the killer's modus operandi with recent murders in other parts of the city, Delaney identifies a normal-seeming businessman as a potential subject. Without additional evidence, however, the case goes nowhere. Delaney, frustrated by his lack of progresses, begins to use psychological warfare in an effort to force the man into making a mistake. Meanwhile, Delaney must endure his own psychological torture as his wife dies slowly in a hospital bed.moreless
