Length:1 Hour 52 Minutes
Cast:Brian G. Hutton, Frank Sinatra, Faye Dunaway, Brenda Vaccaro

Frank Sinatra's final starring movie vehicle was also one of his best. Based on a novel by Lawrence Sanders, The First Deadly Sin casts Sinatra as Edward Delaney, a big-city detective on the verge of retirement. Beset with profound personal problems--including a gravely ill wife (Faye Dunaway)--Delaney nonetheless tackles the case of an axe murderer who seemingly strikes at random. While the film isn't as well-paced as the Sanders novel (it slows down considerably during Dunaway's hospital scenes), Sinatra's no-nonsense performance transcends its faults. Be on the lookout for an unbilled Bruce Willis. Hal Erickson
