An elderly Los Angeles private eye who is down on his luck investigates the murder of his partner and, at the same time, accepts the job offered him by an eccentric “alternative” client to find her cat. At the zenith of the revision of genres, the odd couple Art Carney and Lily Tomlin star in a noir with touches of comedy, produced by Altman and directed by the screenwriter of Gangster Story and What’s Up, Doc?, who won a bundle of Oscars in 1979 with Kramer vs Kramer.
