Description by OLDIES.com:
Approached by someone sitting next to him at the counter while he's stopped at a roadside cafe, private investigator Michael Brennen (O.J. Simpson) ignores his own better judgment and agrees to give the annoying guy a ride. When the man asks that he help find his missing girlfriend, Dani Anatole (Irena Ferris), Brennen refuses. A few weeks later, his pal from the police department, Sergeant Khoury (Eugene Roche), arrives to say that there's been a murder and that Brennen's card was found on the corpse. After Brennen recognizes the dead man as the guy from the cafe, Khoury identifies him as two bit drug dealer Joey Crawford (John Spencer). And now, Brennen is plunged headlong into a murder investigation with drug addicts, dealers and a host of unsavory characters. Newly remastered.
COCAINE AND BLUE EYES was the pilot film for a TV detective series starring former footballer O.J. Simpson (who also produced the film). Playing a private eye in San Francisco, Simpson is hired by a man who ends up seriously dead. The deceased client had wanted Simpson to locate a former girl friend, and in carrying out his assignment Simpson unearths a deadly (and very well connected) cartel of drug dealers. COCAINE AND BLUE EYES gathered dust until O.J. Simpson's murder trial in 1994. After that, this tiresome old TV movie became a staple of "Late Late Shows" everywhere.
