Synopsis
Peter Graves, completely miscast as private eye Lew Archer, goes after the kidnappers of an old flame's young son and gets mixed up in a series of murders going back fifteen years. This was the pilot for the subsequent very short-lived (six episodes) series "Archer" that began in January 1975 and starred Brian Keith, a better but not ideal choice.
