Director

Crackling whodunit starring George Peppard as cynical Washington police captain Frank Matthews, who finds himself the chief suspect when his unfaithful wife and her lover are murdered. Top-notch drama also features Richard Kiley as a clever lawyer, Jean Seberg as the amorous wife, and Charles McGraw, Frank Marth, and Dana Elcar as senior police officers.

-Scott Palmer

When Jean Seberg is in the cab, you can see smoke and flames in the background. These are from the riots in Washington DC that occurred after Martin Luther King was assasinated.
