The book is the clue.
Pretty Maids All in a Row, 1971. Screenplay by Gene Roddenberry. James Doohan is wondering around in there somewhere too.

And William Campbell, who played a proto-Q character in the original Star Trek.

Mostly comic murder mystery, it only sort of works. Written and produced by Rodenberry.

William Hurt as a seedy defense attorney and Ted Danson with ridiculous hair and glasses as his best bud, a seedy prosecutor. Lots of seedy people in this movie.

Correct x 2! Although the director was not involved; they call it the "Assembly Cut".

That looks like the great Ernest Borgnine, and I'd guess it's "Emperor of the North."

Sorry I left out "pole."

I knew someone who started working for what is now Amtrak right after WWII. He said that there were trains he worked where working for Ernest Borgnine's character would actually have been an improvement.

Both titles are correct. The studio shortened it because they thought "North Pole" implied a family Santa Claus picture. Which would have caused complaints.
