OK mystery, could have been better.
9 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Something no one has said yet is this is the seventh movie of Hildegarde Withers from the 1930's! The previous movie, Forty Naughty Girls was in 1937!

An OK, made for TV mystery, which I figured out before the end. And with a kind of "quick" ending. Eve Arden did a great job I thought, for this movie series not being made for nearly 35 years, nobody would probably remember and compare her to the actresses before her. James Gregory as Oscar Piper was OK, but not as irascible, as James Gleason's portrayal. I did laugh at the banter between the two and found it to be entertaining. I would liked to have seen at least one season, or one summer season of episodes, where character development could have taken place. Other than that...it is OK.

Interesting to see the Great PAT MORITA, 3 years before he did Happy Days!

If you are into 70's hippie culture and don't mind an original Star Trek plot rip-off, you might like it. I did.
