Synopsis

In this TV remake of the 1949 Alan Ladd movie "Chicago Deadline," a brash big-time investigative reporter, looking into the death of a call girl, uncovers her diary and tries to find her killer among the names contained in it. Franciosa subsequently shared star billing (on a rotating basis) with Gene Barry and Robert Stack in the weekly series based on this pilot film, "The Name of the Game" (1968-71), in which Susan Saint James, "introduced" here, also was a regular. Former musical comedy star Nanette Fabray did a rare acting part in this movie which was written and produced by her husband.
