Apparently a pilot that went nowhere, The Watchman tells the convoluted story of a reporter (Warden) who has a longstanding relationships with a brutal warlord and later crime lord (Savalas) dating back to the Spanish Civil War. The bad guy, now living in an isolated castle in Spain, beckons the reporter to write his life story, but only from a positive perspective. Conflict ensues, complicated by the presence of the bad guy's mistress, who was once married to the reporter. Too many flashbacks and stock footage of war scenes, and nothing much by way of suspense or even mystery. Unintentional humor comes from scenes featuring a younger Warden and Savalas, sporting big hair. Do yourself a favor and take a pass on this one.
