A police detective falls in love with a woman whose previous lovers have all died or been murdered. The sister of a previous victim appeals to him for help.

After her brother is accidentally gunned down in a gang-style execution, a professor of economics appeals to the police to investigate further claiming that he was not the first man, engaged to a particular beautiful woman, to have died in mysterious circumstances. In fact, he was the fourth, and she is engaged again. She pressures the police to do something to save this poor man from a certain fateā€¦ but what will the charge be?  

A somewhat interesting story, but it just wasn't quite all there for me. There were interesting allusions to the "old gods" and how they might be surviving, but it never seemed to tie up at the end. Not the best, not the worst for me.

An interesting story with excellent acting by Marian Seldes and Larry Haines. As a previous reviewer noted, the plot doesn't exactly tie together in retrospect, but I thoroughly enjoyed the unexpected plot twists. The dialogue and setup during the theater sequence is handled very well!
