You might remember seeing her in "A Week in Palm Springs," lounging enticingly in the bathtub while an aging and flustered Cary Grant tries to find her a suitably revealing towel. Jack Liffey remembers, and even now he can't help but fall for her just a little. The problem is that she's paying him good money to locate her missing daughtera case that is about to get Jack stuck between the seedy violence of the old City of Angels and the new gleaming bloodlust of contemporary Los Angeles.
