I saw this a very long time ago on TV, my guess would be edited of any mature themes. It watched just like a TV mystery movie, Columbo or McCloud. For some reason, it has always intrigued me, possibly because of the cast.
Eleanor Parker, Jessica Walter and Barbara Cason (best known for Carter Country) amused me as these rich high society women. The deaths began amusingly enough without being ridiculous, but yea, then it gave way to less interesting murders. By a couple of the last two deaths that I can recall, it had lost its intrigue when it was the models being killed.
Still, as the other review noted, Gretchen Corbett hating models and Clive Revill as the fashion critic added a strange bit of (obvious) hints of mystery. Could it be this one? Could it be that one? It went even further by bringing in a French secretary when her brand cigarettes were found on one body.
Perhaps it was the skycar loft, Parker's self-destructive character and the marooned characters that no, you couldn't have disliked any more if you tried, that intrigued me. At this time, I had never seen Christie's And then There Were None.
Maybe it was the waiting to see if some of the major characters would die (and perhaps hoping they would).
I didn't solve the crime upon watching, it really seemed like a toss up who the killer would be.
Nevertheless, this oddity keeps surfacing in my memory. If I were to see it again, it might just watch like an old episode of Charlie's Angels.
Still it was a corker.
