Cannon: The Star (1)

Frank is hired when the son of a former Hollywood movie star suddenly disappears.

Joan Fontaine guest stars as a former film great living in the past, but is abruptly brought back to reality by the disappearance of her son, who only recently returned from three years of international travel, in a special two-hour episode of "Cannon." William Wiard directed from a script by Margaret Armen.
Also guest starring, in alphabetical order, are Jack Carter, Linden Chiles, Dana Elcar, Richard Hatch, David Hedison, Michael McGuire and John Vernon.
Miss Fontaine, an Academy Award-winner making her
first dramatic television appearance in more than 15 years, portrays the imperious Thelma Kane, a faded movie star used to having her own way, who turns to Cannon, played by series star William Conrad, for help.
