This fun little murder mystery "car" ghost story predates the Stephen King novel of "CHRISTINE" by nine years. Makes me wonder if Mr. King watched the series!!! No, it is a different story, but the use of the car . . . well. .. I watched this simply for the pleasure of seeing a pre-Sherlock Jeremy Brett. But it is American Donna Mills who stars in this British TV production. British standards of producing TV shows took a number of years to catch up to the American art. So, in 1974 you will see that difference. Reminiscent of a home video to some people who were not used to watching the early British imports on PBS. But, the writing is good, the mysterious feel is present, the acting just right, and a twist at the end for good measure! Other commentaries have outlined the plot, so I will not add to that. But it was an enjoyable hour to spend for me. I would recommend it for those that don't mind the British production levels of the 70's. And I don't. Many other wonderful plays and shows would be sorely missed if we cared too much about that.
