Flat and boring

A woman is found killed and Baretta searches for the truth. The diseased was supposed to be a hooker and our lead tries to find out what where the real motivations to get rid of her. His investigation will bring him in the jet society as well as among the gypsies ; I mean one gypsy girl played by the superb and gorgeous Meg - terrific eyes - Foster. This is a tongue in cheek story here, where the seventies atmosphere and score helps the viewer to get stuck to it. I have nothing more to say. So, to summarize, if you crave for Meg Foster, and her eyes of course, so don't miss it. Otherwise, don't expect any surprise in this lousy forgettable cool detective yarn. Oh yes, Robert Blake was a real good athlete and stuntman too, his own stuntman. One must recognize that. Directed by Bernie Kowalski.
