A good Mystery.
12 October 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

"The Yellow Canary", movie is the story of a singer who's baby is kidnapped. The best acting in the film is from Barbara Eden in one of her best dramatic roles of Lissa Paxton, the wife of the singer and mother of the baby son who's kidnapped. The reaction when she comes home and finds her baby son kidnapped is one of the best scenes in the film. A good mystery and story from Rod Serling.
