Three suspects and one of them is a murderer
25 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Crime Does Not Pay Subject. As is typical in this series, there are no acting credits. A little girl, in tears, runs to a neighbor's house and tells him her parents are hurt. The neighbor (George Cleveland) rushes to the girl's house and finds the mother bound and unconscious and in the bedroom, the father is dead. Cleveland's later and best remembered role was as Gramps on "Lassie." Come to find out, both the mother and father were drugged and the father then strangled. At first it appears as a burglary gone wrong as the woman's jewelry is missing. The couple had been to a party on the night of the murder and the police find that there were three men who had heated rows with the husband. The police investigation and eventual capture of the murderer is fairly interesting but despite the strong opening to this short, this entry is only average.
