Black Eye


1975       Fred Williamson

Trying to cut it as a private investigator by flushing out two-bit criminals in a Southern California beach town is a real penance for Shep Stone (FRED WILLIAMSON). A former police lieutenant, he had been suspended from the force for killing a dope pusher to avenge his sister's overdose death.

As if the situation isn't bad enough, his great love Cynthia (TERESA GRAVES) has an AC-DC problem and is having a thing with a fashion editor, Miss Francis (ROSEMARY FORSYTH).

Coming in late from work one night, Stone discovers his rooming house neighbor Vera Brownmiller (NANCY FISHER), a hooker, stabbed to death. Her murderer, Chess (FRANK STELL), is still on the scene and attacks Stone with an ivory-headed cane, stuns him and escapes.

A police lieutenant friend, Bill Bowen (RICHARD X. SLATTERY), visits Stone and assigns him undercover work on the case. Moms (JOANN BRUNO), who runs a local newsstand and has a nose for what's happening, informs Stone that Vera doubled as an actress in porno movies for a Max

Majors (BRETT MORRISON).

Posing as a film delivery man, Stone finagles his way into Majors' movie studio to question him. A threat from Stone about alerting the vice squad regarding his underground film activities makes an annoyed Majors talk. Stone learns that Vera was the protege of a silent screen favorite, Marcus Rollo (EDMUND PENNY), who recently died. Satisfied with the information he leaves, but not before giving Majors' beautiful assistant Diane Davies (FLOY DEAN) the once over.

Stone pays Miss Francis a visit, since she was seen in the vicinity of the murdered woman's apartment. She offers him five hundred dollars to stop seeing Cynthia; he cuttingly tells her off.

At Lou Siegel's (GENE ELMAN) bar, where Stone makes his headquarters, he is approached by Raymond Dole (RICHARD ANDERSON) to take on the job of finding his missing
daughter, Amy (SUE ANN ARNOLD). With a two hundred dollar advance and a newspaper picture of the girl, Stone begins his search of the local haunts.

His first stop is a Jesus freak church run by Rev. Avery (LARRY D. MANN), but this proves - temporarily -to be one of many dead ends. Other roadstops along his vain pursuit include a soul kitchen, a group of speed freaks, and a numerologist. All the while Stone must sidestep a series of dead bodies which are conspicuously strewn in his path. This not being sufficient deterrence, he is jumped by a couple of heavies and forced to slither down an elevator cable to safety. Stone and Dole find Amy at the beach where she is about to be baptised, but she rejects her father and runs off.

Dole searches for the terrified Amy among the ruins of a former amusement park. When Avery appears she rushes toward him and is grabbed by Dole. Avery tries to defend her and is fatally shot just as Stone appears.

Amy runs off again with Dole following. He surprises her among the debris, forces her down and tears off her blouse, exposing a plastic bag taped around her waist. He rips it away and is about to shoot her when Stone jumps him. They fight. Dole manages to get control of his gun and stalks Stone, firing at him as the detective zig-zags out on a pier. A distressed area in the planking trips Dole, the old boards gradually give way and he plunges into the ocean.

Bowen shows up and his men fish Dole out of the water. Bowen recognizes him as a big syndicate man who has been at the bottom of the narcotics ring. He calculates that the haul is worth a half million dollars.

Case closed, Stone goes off to call on Cynthia, only to find her going away with Miss Francis. She looks at him with a "What is there to say?" expression, as her escort gives Stone a half smile, but a triumphant one.
