But before Sir Harry can break up the marriage he is brutally and viciously murdered and his son-in-law is the prime suspect. Nothing is as it appears and Sir Harry's death soon points towards intrigue and deception on an international scale. Written by .

Did Garry Moore know who killed Sir Harry Oakes?
18 April 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This made-for-tv movie re-examines the still unsolved murder case of Sir Harry Oakes. The acting and characterizations are brilliant,especially Kevin McCarthy as one of Harry's so-called friends. Garry Moore, host of "I've Got A Secret", had a summer place where the murder happened, and in interviews said that after thirty years, the locals refused to discuss Sir Harry's murder. I won't spoil anything by giving away what the writers speculate; rather, watch for yourself, as the acting and screenplay are excellent.
