In this satire of film noir, Lou Peckinpaugh is a San Francisco detective in the boozy, wise-cracking tradition of Humphrey Bogart in ''The Maltese Falcon.''

Meanwhile, he takes a case involving stolen diamonds, and gets reacquainted with his old flame, Marlene DuChard, who's on the run from the Gestapo.
