"THIS GIRL FOR HIRE". "FREE SHIPPING"
This 1983 PG-TV film is about a private detective (B.T. Brady) who, in the employ of an obnoxious elderly mystery writer (Harrison Wooly), is supposed to guard a manuscript for his latest book, then deliver it to a publisher when it is due. However, after only a day with the manuscript, the author is killed. This leaves our private eye with an unpublished manuscript, and more suspects than you can imagine, some desperate enough to kill for it.

This seems to have the makings of a great "Who Done It", and there is another twist.
The private eye is young Woman, not one of the guys, driving her 1947 Chrysler town & country convertible. Zandra Stoneham is her flamboyant mother, a one-time Hollywood starlet, and Wolfe Macready is the latter's live-in lover, a movie has-been who now runs a memorabilia shop. "Wolfe" keeps telling B.T. that being a Private Eye is down right crazy, and too dangerous, and she had promised her Mother she wouldn't take any cases involving a murder. What's ironic, the role of "Wolfe" is played by Howard Duff , the original "Sam Spade, Private Detective" for many years on the radio. (Cute Huh!!).. Slipped into the script are little comments from other detective movies like the "Maltese Falcon" & The Big Sleep, to mention a few. Also a statement was made by B.T.'s Mother in the first few minutes of the movie; "You wouldn't Be In This Crazy Detective Business if I Hadn't Introduced your to Humphrey Bogart when you were a child".

B.T. finally does figure out what all these crazy people want with the manuscript, but only after being threatened at knife point, having her office torn up, then being hit over the head with a gun butt (of course what good detective hasn't had that happen in a movie) & her mother kidnapped.
This 1940's style movie has so many plot twists, and different cast members drifting in & out all looking guilty of the murder, it really keeps you guessing "Who Done It". A great movie to challenge your deductive reasoning, and general criminal knowledge. This movie was also a pilot episode of a series that unfortunately never happened.
