The Carey Treatment stars James Coburn as a swinger-type pathologist who single-handedly solves a murder case in order to free a medic colleague from a bum rap. Written, directed, timed, paced and cast like a feature-for-TV, the production is a serviceable release.

Filmed partly in Boston under the title A Case of Ne; Editor, from Jeffery Hudson’s novel of that name, screenplay has Coburn arriving from California to join Dan O’Herlihy’s medical staff, which includes James Hong, arrested for the alleged abortion-manslaughter of O’Herlihy’s daughter (Melissa Torme-March). Coburn gets time off from immediate superior Regis Toomey and wanders through several sequences, played and edited in no particularly meaningful or suspenseful order, until unearthing the real culprits.
