A bar is held up by a small group of hoodlums. Detective Adam Flint (Paul Burke) is in the bar at the time, but cannot take action because one of the robbers is holding a gun to a customer. When a drunk patron of the bar retaliates against one of the robbers for kicking his dog, he is shot. Detective Flint is blamed by some because he failed to take action. The widow of the murdered man accuses Flint because he didn't want to shoot, because he was too cheap and "Bullets Cost Too Much."
Dick York guest stars as Dr. Charles Colano. Jean Stapleton guest stars as the owner of the bar. And James Caan as one of the robbers.moreless
