Synopsis
Bob Hope, in his first made-for-TV movie as well as his first starring film in over a dozen years, teamed with veteran actor Don Ameche, playing a down-on-his-luck gumshoe and a wealthy retired master thief, respectively, to solve a string of art thefts and murders involving a stellar (by TV standards) guest cast. Among the earlier titles for this one were "A Nice, Pleasant, Deadly Weekend in Palm Springs" and then simply "A Nice, Pleasant, Deadly Weekend" (probably because the production was moved lock, stock, and suspects to Vancouver).
