The Velvet Jungle
An illegal alien, who witnesses a murder, refuses to cooperate with police for fear of deportation, as "The Velvet Jungle." A Mexican girl threatens to expose the illegal activities of the local chief of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, and she is soon murdered. Her roommate witnesses the killing, but can't go to police for fear of being deported. Starsky and Hutch corner one of the killers; but the government official arrives on the scene and shoots his cohort before their eyes -- claiming he actually saved their lives. In an attempt to catch the immigration official in a criminal act, Starsky and Hutch send a Latin policeman to his office in the guise of a crooked copy who wants a part of the illegal action. The time and place for the payoff is set in the city park where Starsky and Hutch are stationed in dis-guise - Hutch, in whiteface, as a mime, and Starsky, thrilling the kids, as Charlie Chaplin.
