Theatrical Release Poster
P.J. is a 1968 American crime neo-noir that stars George Peppard, Gayle Hunnicutt and Raymond Burr in a villainous role after playing good guy Perry Mason on television for the previous nine years (1957-1966).George Peppard plays New York City Private eye P.J. Detweiler. He is hired by millionaire William Orbinson (Raymond Burr) to protect his mistress, Maureen Preble (Gayle Hunnicutt).
