The film has two parts, which are intertwined with some flashbacks. The first part features Joe Leland (Frank Sinatra) investigating the murder of a homosexual, the second part features him investigating a mysterious death and the flashbacks involve the relationship between Joe and his ex-wife. This 1968 piece is badly dated and deals with homosexuality as a persuasion that housed mostly the sly, the hysterical and the out-and-out dubious. Not quite criminals, but viewed as people just one step above. The director deals with the subject with a heavy hand – although Sinatra expresses no strong homophobia and calls for fairness. Detective is 1968 film and you can watch it here and all the torrent links are available here.
