Description by OLDIES.com:
Harry Orwell has been retired from the force ever since he caught a bullet that lodged inoperably in his back. But that doesn't mean the man called Harry O is out of the action. Moonlighting as a private sleuth, fighting off daily back pain and typically traveling by public bus instead of his own car ("It gives a man a chance to think"), he's on the trail of the lowlife who murdered his pal's son-in-law. It won't be the only time the killer strikes before Harry closes in.
David Janssen portrays dogged detective Harry in the telefilm that was the second of two pilots preceding his memorable "Harry O" series. Among the highlights: young Jodie Foster as Liberty, the wise-beyond-her-years homeless waif Harry befriends.
A private detective begins investigating the death of his police lieutenant friend's son-in-law and becomes involved with the prime suspect, the lieutenant's daughter.
