"Augusta is the best woman in the world . . . even if she is a cop!"
Once in a while there is a man . . . or woman . . . who gets an urge . . . an urge to do something special. I remember as a young boy the amazing story of David Wilkerson. He was a preacher like my dad in the same denomination and in a town not too far from us when in 1958 he read a story in Life Magazine about the Egyptian Dragons street gang in New York City. His spirit was filled with a passion to help disadvantaged teens in the big city and he drove from his small town Pennsylvania home to New York City where he slept in his car and walked the streets for days talking to street gang members that were trapped in a vicious cycle of drugs and destructive decisions. From that intense passion grew the Teen Challenge organization that still thrives and helps teens in trouble with the law and society turn around and become better men and women. I can still remember as a very young boy one occasion when Rev. Wilkerson visited us and I was fascinated by his very unusual small car shaped like a wedge with only three wheels.
This crime adventure, filmed some 25 years earlier, is about one feisty old lady cop with a similar passion - the passion to help girls in trouble . . . some in trouble with the law and some in trouble with men. Peggy, played by Lona Andre, has a bun in the oven and no husband, so she wants to run away, but is convinced to move in with Augusta . . . Police Officer Augusta Winthrop, played by Lucile Gleason. Then another girl knocks on Augusta's door who has a little baby by gangster Big Bill Lewis - Jason Robards Sr. in a rare role of the bad guy. The gangster's girl took cancelled checks and evidence of his crimes with her and policewoman Augusta would just love to get that evidence and put the gangster away for a long time. Of course, big gangsters don't get very big by being stupid, and he is able to keep one step ahead of the cops. After killing the young girl the gangster only needs to get the evidence back to be in the clear, but Augusta now has that evidence, so he will try to take the evidence from Augusta and then kill her just as he did his girlfriend. Alone in a hotel room with Augusta his hand is on the trigger and Augusta faces certain death . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
