    An “adult” thriller, The Detective (1968) stars Frank Sinatra as the titular protagonist, an incorruptible, no-nonsense cop wrapped up in a disturbing homicide case even as he attempts to deal with the disintegration of his marriage to wife Karen (Lee Remick). Complicating matters is his new relationship with the wife (Jacqueline Bisset) of another murder victim. Jerry Goldsmith wrote the score, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

    Interesting footnote- THE DETECTIVE is technically a prequel to DIE HARD!!!
    From Wikipedia-
    "In 1979 Roderick Thorp wrote a sequel to The Detective called Nothing Lasts Forever, in which Leland is trapped in a Klaxon Oil Corporation skyscraper after it is taken by German terrorists and must rescue his daughter and grandchildren. The novel was adapted into the 1988 20th Century Fox film Die Hard, in which Joe Leland's name was changed to John McClane, the object of his heroism was changed from his daughter to his wife, and Klaxon became the Nakatomi Corporation. Fox was contractually obligated to offer Sinatra the lead role, but he promptly turned it down. The film launched a film franchise that continues into the 2010s."
