Storyline

Haworth is a show biz producer who has a number of ex-girlfriends that he has beaten over the years. He is now engaged to two girls- Lisa and Trenna. After drinking and starting a fight with Sim, Haworth is found dead in his apartment. Everyone has a reason to kill him, but most of the blame is falling on Sim and his love Trenna. If they are to be cleared, it is up to Aunt Melissa to find the killer - and she thinks she knows who is was. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Enjoyable murder mystery.
1 October 2001 | by (Evanston ,Illinois) – See all my reviews

Cought the film on TCM last week and found it quite enjoyable. The film seemed well cast and stylishly played. It certainly seemed like an "A" production to me. Constance Collier, in an Edna Mae Oliver type of role, is excellent. I was not familiar with her work and she does have an imposing presence. One problem was with the climax in which a good deal of action seems to go on in the dark. This, to me, became somewhat confusing. I wonder if this was an effect of watching it on the small screen?
