A year later, the actor draws the attention of a new, far from the acute distinctiveness, rather, a lyrical role - private detective in the film A. Pakula "Klyut" (1971). His hero is coming to New York to find his disappeared friend, but unexpectedly falls in love with "call girl" (Jane Fonda), a psychopathic killer threatens.
