Savalas recreated his popular role of Theo Kojak, the NYPD detective he had portrayed from 1973 to 1978, in this hybrid movie that meshed a Kojak adventure with a mystery about the murder of a number of elderly Russian emigres that was the plot of John Loftus' best-seller, "The Belarus Secret." Koja
This film tested the waters for a possible new "Kojak" series. Trivia buffs will note that both Savalas and von Sydow acted together as, respectively, Pontius Pilate and Jesus Christ, in "The Greatest Story Ever Told." Also, both actors had played James Bond's arch nemesis, Ernst Blofeld: Savalas menacing George Lazenby in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" and von Sydow menacing Sean Conncery in "Never Say Never Again."
