Synopsis:
Based on the smash Broadway hit, the gritty and gripping drama of Detective Story explodes onto the big screen under the capable direction of William Wyler. Set amidst the hectic activity of a New York City police station, Kirk Douglas stars as the principled, rigid detective whose personal code has become twisted from dealing with too many criminals. Eleanor Parker is his wife, tormented by a guilty secret. While the business of the precinct swirls around them - from cases involving a frightened shoplifter (Lee Grant) to an amusing burglar (Joseph Wiseman) - the couple's personal conflict reaches an explosive, unforgettable climax.
