Movie Details

Edward Woodward of The Equalizer fame stars in this TV movie as Edward "Teddy" Harrison, a retired Scotland Yard detective currently visiting his daughter Cecilia (Elizabeth Hurley) in New York City. At the request of a prominent lawyer, Harrison takes on the challenge of proving that an ex-convict-- and known drug dealer--did not murder a much-beloved NYPD narcotics officer. As he delves deeper into the case, Harrison is struck by the curious fact that the Police Department itself is only half-heartedly pursuing the investigation of the killing. As for Cecilia, she would just soon her dad drop the whole matter--at least before her marriage to a city cop! Chock full of unanticipated twists and turns, Harrison: Cry of the City made its first appearance over the UPN network on February 27, 1996. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
