I don't mind you guarding my body but please don't breath down my neck

***SPOILERS*** Mike Hammer, Stacey Keach, gets the envious job of guarding the sexy hot as a pistol "Darling Magazine" editor Claire Morgan's, Barbara Carrera, body in her being on the hit list of this mysterious lady killer who has it in for women in power like she is. This all started after Clair's appearance on a TV broadcast of Dr. Joyce, O Brother Where Art Thou, Brothers "The View" like hit show "Womens World". It turns out that all the women, except Clair and Dr. Joyce Brothers, on the show talking about their success in the business and publishing world have been murdered as they were going to pick up their cars in underground garages around the city.

Hammer more interested in keeping Calire alive overlooks the killer motives in targeting himself as well as the women he kills to get him out of his hair and keep him from preventing the killer from doing his job. That in murdering, with a straight edge razor, women in power that he feels are a threat to him or his manhood as well as have already, in him losing everything he had, ruined his life!

***SPOILERS*** After a number of false alarms with a number of people, men & women, murdered Hammer finally gets to the bottom of all this when the killer, wearing a womens stocking over his face, gets his chance to do Caire, after thanking her morning swim, in. It turns out that the almost always wrong Dr. Brothers got it right this time in who the killer is and what his gripe is with women in power are. But this time around it was a man-Mike Hammer- not a woman who screwed him up and ended up doing him in. P.S As in all the "New Mike Hammer" episodes "The Face", Donna Denton, made her cameo appearance here but on close circuit TV not live and in person.
