The Presidio Details


San Francisco detective Jay Austin ([[Performer~P30474~Mark Harmon~markharmon]]) is assigned to investigate the murder of a female MP at the 212-year-old Presidio army base in this crime drama. Jay must interview Lieutenant Colonel Caldwell ([[Performer~P10646~Sean Connery~seanconnery]]), his former commander from his military days. The two must overcome their past and present differences to track down the killer as they manage to stumble across a smuggling operation relating to the murder. Jay falls for Caldwell's pretty daughter Donna ([[Performer~P62388~Meg Ryan~megryan]]), who proves to be as forceful as her father. Highlights of the film are the chase scene through Chinatown and [[Performer~P10646~Connery~seanconnery]]'s exceptional performance. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
