The Mighty Quinn



Life in the easygoing Caribbean is hard on Police Chief Xavier Quinn (Washington). Dubbed 'the Mighty Quinn by sarcastic islanders and nagged by a wife who’d rather he were babysitting, Quinn is suddenly thrust into action when his childhood friend Maubee (Townsend) is accused of murder. Forced to search for his elusive friend, Quinn meets up with a colorful array of suspects, including the dead man's beautiful mistress who dreams of being a lounge singer (Mimi Rogers), an eccentric voodoo sorceress with snakes in her parlor (Esther Rolle) and a mysterious American visitor with dubious intentions (M. Emmet Walsh). (official distributor synopsis)
