From Hal Erickson of Rovi:
Frank Albertson (a pre-'Politically Incorrect' Bill Maher) is a down-on-his-luck private eye, dealing mostly with surveillance camera jobs of guys cheating on their wives. After years of sponging off Frank and his wife Sunny (Faith Ford), Frank's uncle Charlie (John Finnegan) suddenly inherits a fortune--and just as suddenly disappears. Later on, a mangled corpse is found on a local railroad track, whereupon Frank attempts to claim the body as that of Uncle Charlie.. However, there seems to be several other people interested in claiming the corpse--and the aforementioned inheritance--themselves.
From the source:
Our hero - Well now let me see, is hero the right word for Frank Albertson? Maybe not. I promise you, he's not very heroic. Actually he's a lost soul looking for one good shot at the brass ring.
The story opens on a spring day in sunny Hollywood, land of orange groves, movie stars, and private detectives......
