Detective Story
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 to an amusing burgler - the couple's personal conflict reaches an explosive, unforgettable climax.
