Storyline

A military convoy is transporting something apparently for disposal. They pass by Sheriff Abel Marsh's town and they are passing by property that's owned by Amy Franklin who is the girlfriend of Abel's deputy, Malcolm. Before they know it, everything around the property is uninhabitable. The army returns to clean things up and make restitution. But there is one nagging question, was this an accident or was it deliberate? That is something Abel is most interested in finding out. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

fourth Abel marsh movie, third actor
14 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite nutsy's claims to the contrary, this is an excellent example of nifty TV movie making from the seventies. Surrounded by quirky employees and neighbors, Sheriff Abel Marsh is the sole sane man in town forced to deal with a potentially devastating chemical spill. Sure it plays a little like the Andy Griffith Show, but only with murders but it's definitely worth watching.

Track down the earlier entries, "They Kill Their Masters" with James Garner, "Isn't It Shocking" with Alan Alda and "Girl in the Empty Grave" with Griffith. Also worth finding is "Winter Kill", also with Griffith. It's great seeing him do things that aren't just the simple folksiness at which he's great.
