Ellery Queen: Channel 4. What was on when she pulled out the plug?
Inspector Richard Queen: Yeah, we called the station. An experimental program, news and weather. We're getting a script.
Ellery Queen: News at that hour?
Inspector Richard Queen: Yeah, big mistake. Who wants to watch the problems of the world before he goes to bed?

A Superb Mystery Film
1 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a quite superb mystery film which was the prequel to an equally superb NBC television series. A few years before 'Too Many Suspects', Peter Lawford had starred as Ellery Queen in the film 'Don't Look Behind You'. It was watchable, but Lawford just wasn't the right as Ellery Queen. Jim Hutton, with his gangling, absent-minded amiability fitted the bill perfectly. The interplay between Hutton and David Wayne, who plays his father, Inspector Queen of the NYPD, is a joy to watch as is the rivalry between the Queens and the self-satisfied radio performer and amateur sleuth Simon Brimmer. The mystery itself is a very strong one, with plenty of twists and a truly ingenious ending. The film never drags for a moment and a genuine sense of excitement is built up. If there's ever been a more entertaining mystery film made than 'Too Many Suspects', I haven't seen it.
