A Wonderful Gem!
10 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Diagnosis: Murder is not the Dick Van Dyke show but a compelling drama starring the great versatile actor and future Knight of the Grand Cross, Christopher Lee,playing the main suspect in a murder mystery. It has more twist and turns than the most crooked street in San Francisco. If you want a good fright, this film is worth it. I saw it last night on Metro TV and loved it with the wonderful British scenery and a great script too. Christopher Lee is one of Britain's best loved and known film actors. Acting in movies is looked down upon by stage actors although they would sell out in a minute to become a film star. it is not an easy genre to play in and Christopher Lee plays his characters thoughtfully and better than any known stage actor. He is a veteran actor of the horror genre and I pray that he is knighted on day. Nobody can compare to his film history.
