The personal story of Ed Zigo, the New York City detective who helped crack the headline-making "Son of Sam" murders case in the late 1970s following the killer's 13-month reign, gave veteran actor Martin Sheen (whose credits continue amassing at an astonishing rate) another meaty role. Broadway actor Robert Trebor put his amazing resemblance to David Berkowitz, who gained the nickname "Son of Sam," to perfect use in the role of the unbalanced murderer, and Sheen's own son, Charlie, one of the new generation's up-and-coming "Brat Pack" stars, does a surprise walk-on, slamming the door in dad's face during one of Zigo's door-to-door investigations.
