Jessica Fletcher's evil twin
11 June 2008 | by (Ramsey, NJ) – See all my reviews

Don't know where this picture originated. There is no studio at the beginning of the credits and it doesn't look like a TV production, although several of the players went on to successful careers in Television. Besides Burr and Lansbury, John Dehner and Denver Pyle did lots of TV work on many different shows. It also May have been a 'B' from an obscure studio and played with a weak 'A' picture.

In any case, the end result is a watchable film well-acted by some old pros and without any outlandish plot device acting as a Deus Ex Machina

  • surprisingly well-written. The engrossing storyline makes up for some


dead time in the middle. Not a bad effort all around.
