Not reviewed at press time. Round Rock resident Kenneth Austin shot this detective film in various Austin locations. The first-timer's film is a noir-styled murder mystery about a private eye who is enlisted to solve the murder of Sausage King millionaire Eddie Pflutzensteiner. The man's golddigging young widow is the prime suspect but there's also suspicion about his psycho daughter, Sybil. And then there are those dreams about the alien spaceships.
