The Murder That Wouldn't Die | 1979
William Conrad stars as a retired L.A.P.D. detective who has moved to Hawaii and taken a job as college security chief and assistant football coach in this pilot to a post-"Cannon" series to have been called "Battles". With the aid of his niece, the school's star football player, a local tough-turned-college student, and the college dean, he investigates two related murders that occurred nearly forty years apart. Film buffs will note an inaccuracy by having Lowell Thomas, who long had been the voice of Fox Movietone News, narrating a cleverly recreated black and white Universal newsreel that turns out to be vital to the case.
