William Holden made his first major TV appearance in decades with this landmark adaptation of Joseph Wambaugh’s depiction of life on the LAPD beat. The Blue Knight pioneered “novels for television” and told the story of LA cop Bumper Morgan (Holden) and his final week before retirement. The years have taken their toll on Bumper, both within and without, but this tarnished chevalier of the streets is still dedicated to protecting the public that he mistrusts from the criminal elements in it’s midst. There are just a few things Bumper needs to get done before collecting his pension and getting married to college instructor Cassie Walters (Lee Remick), chief among them solving a vicious murder.
