Storyline

Harry is attending a seaside jazz club when he hears a trumpeter playing in tune outside. Suddenly the trumpeter falls into the water - pushed in by a hit man unnoticed by anyone else. Harry, thinking the trumpeter passed out from being drunk, takes him to his beach house to sober up, and the next morning leaves to buy groceries.

Quotes

[first lines]
Harry Orwell: [voiceover] When they tore down my house in San Diego to make an empty place for a new high rise, I felt they were trying to tell me something. So I decided to stay in Santa Monica. I like my neighbors. I like the little bar I was sitting in. I like the piano player. I liked the life. So I asked Betsy, the airline stewardess next door, if she knew any place I could find a house at the beach. She said, "next door to us; we're moving, too." So they moved, so I moved.
