Despite Some Logical Issues, A Good Movie

She Cried Murder (1973)

*** (out of 4)

Sarah Cornell (Lynda Day George) is riding the first cart of a subway when she sees a woman get pushed onto the tracks. The train comes to a stop and when she gets off she gets a very clear look at the man who pushed her. Later in the day she decides to call and tell the police but when they show up to get her story she's shocked to see that Inspector Joe Brody (Telly Savalas) is the one who pushed the lady. The rest of the film is the cat and mouse chase as he tries to kill her to keep her shut.

SHE CRIED MURDER is a good but at times frustrating made-for-television movie that manages to have a lot of good things going for but at the same time you're going to need to turn your brain off. I say this because there are so many logical issues that you've pretty much got to overlook including the fact that this woman is running miles and miles screaming and begging for help yet no one ever does. A quick call to the police at any moment probably would have helped. There is a sequence where the cops are involved but of course they don't believe anything she says. A slight bit of investigating on their part would have gone a long way.

As for the good, the film moves pretty quickly and really plays like a silent movie because there's not too much dialogue. The majority of the picture features George running while Savalas tries to catch her. There are some nice tense scenes throughout and director Herschel Daugherty certainly makes this fun throughout. Savalas is certainly good in the role of the psychopath and George is alright as well. SHE CRIED MURDER isn't the greatest film ever made but it's slight and quick entertainment.
