Fletch (1985)

98 min.
Plot  ''Los Angeles Times'' reporter Irwin "Fletch" Fletcher (Chase) is writing an article exposing the drug traffic on the beaches of Los Angeles. Posing as an addict during his investigation, he is approached by Boyd Aviation executive vice president Alan Stanwyk (Matheson) who mistakenly assumes Fletch is a junkie. Stanwyk claims to have bone cancer, with only months left to live, and wishes to avoid the pain and suffering. Stanwyk offers $50,000 for Fletch to come to his mansion in a few days time, kill him, and then escape to Rio de Janeiro, staging the murder to appear as the result of a burglary.

Fletch is suspicious but reluctantly agrees to the plan. Along with his colleague Larry (Davis), he begins investigating Stanwyk instead of completing his drug trafficking exposé, much to the dismay of his stern editor Frank Walker (Libertini). Fletch endures a rectal exam from Stanwyk's doctor, Dr. Dolan (Walsh), in a failed attempt to talk Dolan into divulging medical information ...
