Goodnight My Love (1972) is a well done little private eye flick made for televison, not quite the Maltese Falcon spoof it claims, but still great fun.
A scruffy, down at his heels detective, FRANK HOGAN (played by Richard Boone) and his partner, a literate, well-dressed dwarf, ARTHUR BOYLE, agency are hired by a naive blonde (Barbara Bain) to track down her wayward boyfriend in the seamy underworld of 1946 Los Angeles. Good script, excellent direction, supposedly. but don't take my word for it. Check out what Dick Lochte, who actually saw it, says below.
Boone, of course, made his P.I. bones years earlier, playing Paladin on Have Gun, Will Travel. And, give him credit, he was pretty good as bad guy Lash Canino in the ill-fated 1978 remake of The Big Sleep.
