New York City police detectives John Rawlings (Howard Hesseman, About Schmidt) and Brendan Thomas (Ed Marinaro, TV's "Hill Street Blues") find themselves on the biggest case of their lives when the two are tipped on a $12.5-million diamond heist, including the legendary White Hall diamond. Checking out the lead, they come across Tara Holden (Brooke Shields, The Blue Lagoon), a museum employee who they realize is in on the take. The detectives convince Holden to play ball and help them take down the crooks. The case takes Rawlings all the way to London, where he joins with an unconventional Scotland Yard agent (Twiggy, The Boy Friend) to try to catch the thieves red-handed. Newly remastered.
