He returned with an eye patch and a sidekick: a tough-as-nails GI named Chuck Baer, who picked up a private investigator’s license in order to keep an eye on his old foxhole buddy. In a fair fight, these 2 veterans could take down any hoodlum in New York. But the man they’re up against doesn’t fight fair.
