The Black Stiletto: Secrets & Lies
The Black Stiletto: Secrets & Lies sees us coming to the fourth of five episodes where the early 1960’s collide with modern times. At the early end of the timeline, we follow the exploits of Judy Cooper who literally walks the streets of NewYork as the “caped crusader” The Black Stiletto. In her more productive moments, she’s a crime fighter. Her problem is the NYPD has decided she’s a menace and plans to arrest her. When a police officer is almost killed while chasing her, she relocates to Los Angeles where she finds herself employed by a DA who wants to take on organized crime. In modern times, Judy Collins has become Judy Talbot. She’s nearing death and has severe symptoms of Alzheimer’s. Meanwhile, her son, Martin, and granddaughter, Gina, are having problems as the past slowly catches up to them.
This is all great fun as the female of the species show the timorous Martin how to confront criminals and triumph. The historical side of 1961 is pleasingly detailed while the modern world proves the adage that elephants never forget. In this case, the Dixie mob has every reason to remember The Black Stiletto and want her dead.
