Synopsis:
Eddie Ginley (Albert Finney) is a comedian turned private eye who gets into hot water when he meets a fat man (George Silver) and a femme fatale (Janice Rule). Armed with only rapid-fire banter and a sharpened instinct, Ginley must save the dame from a drug smuggling ring before the joke's on him. Paying homage to Bogart, Chandler and Hammett, 'Gumshoe' puts a clever spin on the classic detective tale.
