'Murder at 1600'

Scene from this movie Detective Harlan Regis (Wesley Snipes) is called about a homicide, that is: dead, leggy blonde lying in a pool of blood in a restroom at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. As soon as he starts to investigate he runs into an official brick wall. Nick Spikings, the director of White House security, is particularly uptight. "This doesn’t leave the room," he rasps.

As far as Regis is concerned, this murder happened in his jurisdiction and in his city. Naturally, this attitude meets with resistance at every turn. Regis barrels on, with the help of Detective Stengel (Dennis Miller) and Secret Service Agent Chance (Diane Lane). -- Desson Howe
