Turk 182!

Taking aim squarely at the popular theme of the working man’s struggle against the in- equities in the system, Turk 182!, a cleverly conceived story [by James Gregory Kingston] of a mystery rebel in New York City whose popularity reaches almost mythic proportions, convincingly hits its mark.

Timothy Hutton plays a 20-year-old who defends the honor of his older brother (Robert Urich), fireman who, when off-duty in a bar, responds to a plea for help and risks his life by going into a burning building to save a young girl. Urich is severely injured but the city refuses to come to his aid, maintaining that he should not have entered the premises in his intoxicated state.

That’s when Hutton takes his plea on his brother’s behalf through the city bureaucracy to no avail, including a forced confrontation with the mayor (Robert Culp). Hutton begins a one-man quest to embarrass and discredit the mayor.

Besides its compelling storyline, Turk 182! features outstanding performances across the board, with Hutton perfect in the role of the determined unassuming hero.
