It's the beginning of the Labor Day weekend. Starfish automobile executive Daniel Corban, who is on his honeymoon with his wife of two weeks, Elizabeth Corban, at a lavish secluded lake-front house in the quaint summer resort community of Skuylkill, is frustrated. First, Elizabeth has not been seen in three days, and second, Skuylkill police inspector Murray Levine, who has a down home attitude matching the slow pace of the town, doesn't seem to be doing much about trying to find her despite Daniel's insistence that he do so. Levine does not see it as a police case since by Daniel's own admission she left on her own volition after the two of them had an argument. Levine has at least vowed that members of his detachment will look out for her and her missing vehicle. Daniel's frustration increases when a woman who claims to be Elizabeth, but is not, returns in what looks to be Elizabeth's car. He is unable to convince anyone, including Levine, that she isn't Elizabeth. And anyone in ... Written by
For a made-for-TV movie, this one is great! Jack Klugman is funny, caring and clever as a big-city cop transferred to a sleepy suburb. When Daniel Corban reports that a woman has showed up impersonating his wife, it's up to Klugman to solve the mystery. Watch for a quirky priest, a charity woman and deli owner who help stir the pot. You don't know who to trust until the very, very end. James Franciscus, who can be a bit wooden in some roles, is great a man who who wonders if he himself is going crazy, or if it's just everyone else. I first saw this one when it was one of the ABC "Movies of the Week" in the 1970s, and didn't see it again until the 1990s. I taped it (got started five or 10 minutes late) but it is a VHS that I cherish--whip it out whenever I need a lift.
