Odd mystery with title that becomes irrelevant after ten minutes about a small town sheriff (James Garner) investigating a murder and uncovering big city decadence. Nothing special, but Garner is good and the story, with its not-quite-comfortable take on 70s sexual freedom, is just off-beat enough to keep you interested. Also with Katharine Ross, Hal Holbrook, and Peter Lawford. And Hans, playing Murphy, a Doberman briefly thought to be the killer and later adopted by the sheriff.
"Never have there been so many quizzically uplifted brows, so many slight pauses in speech, and so many dryly-cynical deliveries of so many forgettable lines." - Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times, November 22, 1972
"This is the most original and likable whodunit I have seen in years." - Howard Thompson, The New York Times, November 23, 1972
