An Excellent Mystery!
4 November 1999 | by (S. Bound Brook, NJ) – See all my reviews

"Jan Cornell" (played by Jane Wyman lookallike Ruth Terry), a 'radio detective', tries to solve an old murder case ("The Case of the Crying Pines"). Aided (?) by the sound effects girl and "Michael Jerome" (another 'radio detective'), the trio explore a "haunted house", and interview the original people involved. Strangely enuff (or, perhaps NOT so strangely) the suspects

wind up dead before they can tell the trio what they want to know.

It's a shame that this is a relatively-unknown mystery, 'cos it's and EXCELLENT film (and, Ruth Terry is certainly CUTE!). See this one, if you can find it!
