Synopsis

Veteran actor William Holden made his dramatic debut on TV in the role of Bumper Morgan, a twenty-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department on his last few days on the force before his retirement, and won an Emmy Award for his performance. The miniseries form as subsequently established began with this four-hour film that was shown initially in one-hour segments on four consecutive nights. This is a movie version of the best-selling novel by Joseph Wambaugh, the ex-cop who turned writer to successfully tell of his experiences here and on the series "Police Woman" and "Joe Forrester", as well as "The Blue Knight" series with George Kennedy taking over the lead role from William Holden. In addition to Holden's Emmy, statuettes were given to director Robert Butler (for Part 3) and to editors Marjorie and Gene Fowler and Samuel E. Beetley. Lee Remick also received a nomination for her performance as Bumper Morgan's ever-patient girlfriend Cassie Walters.
