Synopsis
The acclaimed TV adaptation of Selwyn Raab's book based on the Wylie-Hoffert murders in Manhattan in 1963, resulting in the case that ultimately led to the Supreme Court's Miranda decision three years later. Both director Sargent and writer Mann won Emmy Awards, and Telly Savalas received a nomination for his role which skyrocketed him to stardom in the subsequent hit series (1973-78), playing in this film a hard-boiled detective who fights to keep a black teenager from being wrongly convicted of the killings of two women. After its initial showing, it was cut down to two and a half hours and retitled "Kojak and the Marcus-Nelson Murders."
