Synopsis
Will Eisner’s famed comic book hero makes his live-action debut in this rarely seen TV adaptation starring Sam Jones (Flash Gordon) as Central City’s most rumpled crimefighter. Shot in the line of duty, police detective Denny Colt (Jones) is thought to be dead when his body turns up missing. Allowing his enemies to believe he died, Colt dons a blue suit and mask and proceeds to fight crime as The Spirit. Aided by Police Commissioner Dolan (Garry Walberg) and in love with Dolan's daughter Ellen (Nana Visitor), The Spirit works outside the law as he attempts to bust an art forgery racket run by the notorious femme fatale P’Gell (McKinlay Robinson). Written as a series pilot by Steven E. de Souza (Die Hard) and directed by Michael Schultz (Car Wash), The Spirit captures the tongue-in-cheek charm of Eisner’s legendary strip, “the Citizen Kane of comics” (USA Today).

    everything about this movie is just as you would remember the character if you are into comic books. This movie follows the true "Spirit" of the comic book character and brings him to life the way you would have remembered him as opposed to the other movie about this character that, when I saw it; to me that other more expensive movie could have been done better. This movie brought the true meaning to the character and Sam Jones playing him was fantastic.

      Great movie. I"m a big Sam J. Jones fan and was glad to add this to my collection. The film definitely does justice to the character created by Will Eisner. Well worth getting
