After discovering the connection between a corrupt city commissioner and Colombian killers, Kojak is framed for the murder of a call girl and is prosecuted by former police detective Crocker, now an assistant D.A.
After a flighty young woman accidentally witnesses a Mob hit in an Italian restaurant, New York Police Inspector Theo Kojak must both protect her from an unscrupulous Dutch hitman, and bring Mob kingpin Tony Salducci to justice.
One fine day elderly concentration camp survivor Max Von Sydow spots Herbert
Berghof in Manhattan. With what Berghof did to Von Sydow back in the day
you don't forget that face. In fact Berghof leads Von Sydow to a lot of other
familiar faces from those bad old days in a concentration camp run by White
Russian collaborators with the Nazis.
When several elderly men start getting abruptly dead that brings Lt. Theo Kojak
on the scene. He's got a new young detective to take the place of Crocker
in Alan Rosenberg. And in checking immigration files he has to deal with
the State Department in the person of Suzanne Pleshette.
Nice work if you can get it, but Pleshette is to misdirect Kojak and she makes
a good try. But Telly Savalas has been around the block a few times.
It all has to do with a scheme hatched in the minds of some fervent anti-Communists in the beginning days of the Cold War. When Berghof and Von
Sydow meet with Savalas and Rosenberg it's quite the climax.
Just who gets to fulfill his mission.
With the exception of Kevin Dobson all the other detectives from Manhattan
South are there along with Dan Frazer as Captain McNeill. But that would be
it for them.
It's a good made for TV movie about the most passionate law and order cop
that television ever invented.
