Description by OLDIES.com:
Julia Joliet handles fan mail for movie stars. Now someone has a message for her, delivered at point-blank range. David Janssen (TV's "The Fugitive") brings his laconic cool to Twenty Plus Two as Tom Alder, a Los Angeles private eye who ties Joliet's murder to the 12-year-old case of a schoolgirl heiress who went out for an ice-cream soda and never came back. As Alder pieces together the crime puzzle against a backdrop of hot jazz and hip Kennedy-era style, he edges closer to the truth - including the surprising truth about his own past. Memorable screen talents Jeanne Crain, Dina Merrill, Agnes Moorehead, Robert Strauss and William Demarest play a shadowy gallery of ladies and dames, eccentrics and losers involved in the investigation.
Sounding something like a standard '40s police story, this talkative but interesting murder mystery stars David Janssen of TV's THE FUGITIVE series. Janssen plays Tom Alder, a gumshoe looking into the murder of the secretary of a shady Hollywood film star when he discovers that the murder is linked to the disappearance of an heiress. The heiress had a run-in with a sexually warped individual who later became a certain film star. Now Alder's problem is to investigate the link further -- even after he discovers that he himself has a connection to the story through someone he met in Tokyo during the Korean War.
