Movie Info

Actor/producer Robert Blake tried and failed three times to launch a TV detective weekly titled Joe Dancer. The first such attempt was the feature-length pilot The Big Black Pill. As Joe Dancer, Blake struts and frets his way around Beverly Hills in search of a killer. Blake's then-wife Sondra co-stars as Joe Dancer's physically challenged assistant. The Big Black Pill went down in one gulp on January 29, 1981. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Joe Dancer: The Big Black Pill

Hardboiled gumshoe wannabe saved from mediocrity by a varied and interesting supporting cast of great veteran actors all of whom except JoBeth Williams don't get enough screen time.
