An odd little crime film that was financed by its star, Tone, and his producers, the Danziger brothers, for a sum of $400,000. Tone plays a crusading New York assistant district attorney determined to expose and smash a vile "hate group" of supposedly patriotic Americans after they murder

his buddy, McCormick, a newspaper columnist. The group, however, is prepared for Tone and sends a female operative, Wallace, to seduce the crime fighter. Wallace isn't all bad, of course, and just as she is about to confess the truth to Tone, she is murdered by the gang. Now totally enraged, Tone

pushes even harder against the evildoers and eventually discovers that the ringleader happens to be one of the most respected and powerful women in New York. All the loose ends are tied up in the climax, which takes place in a modern art museum. JIGSAW is a competent, albeit uninspired crime drama

peppered with cameo appearances by Tone's Hollywood friends. Dietrich shows up as the patron of the Blue Angel nightclub (something of a joke?), Fonda does a bit as a waiter, Meredith is a bartender, and Garfield even makes a brief appearance.
