Joan Rivers playing a stereotyped snob out of water .....
And she does an excellent job.The one liners coming from Rivers are something that seem familiar, yet are consistently funny. Alex Rocco is always good, whether it be in a gem like "Fire Sale", or here where he is the innocent husband accused of trying to kill Joan. Watching Joan shimmy out a second floor bedroom window in her Chinchilla coat is a must see. "How To Murder A Millionaire" is good clean fun, with no sex, nudity, or cursing. It just goes to show what talent can accomplish, without having to step down a notch. Joan Rivers was 57 years old when this TV movie was made, and she looks terrific with at least a bunch of cosmetic work already done. The comedy is necessarily "dark", and the story rather simple, yet Joan carries the film into above average territory with her familiar, yet entertaining rendition of a "snob out of water". - MERK
