Aging private eye Ira Wells (Academy Award-winner Art Carney) has agreed to help a Hollywood kook named Margo (Lily Tomlin) locate her missing cat. Little does he know he's got a tiger by the tail.
Written and directed by three-time Oscar winner Robert Benton, The Late Show is a brilliant, funny and gutsy modern-day homage to '40s detective thrillers. Like his contemporaries Phillip Marlowe and Sam Spade, gimpy-legged Ira's one of the great ones. (Carney won the 1977 National Society of Film Critics Best Actor Award for his work here.) Will this one last case - and this one flaky lady - give him one last chance to prove it? Stay up with The Late Show and solve the mystery!
