A short tempered film star is murdered in this early nineties mystery film based off of the Mary Higgins Clark Novel 'Weep No more My Lady'. The film star who acts like a diva throughout the first part of the film is Leila. We see early on that she is receiving strange phone calls from a person with a disguised voice, and is in a pretty depressed state. She's filming a movie that she clearly does not want to be a part of, while at the same time struggles with insecurities about her husband Ted and her sister Elisabeth. She is drowned late one night and the husband is the main suspect.
Where 'Weep No More My Lady' fails is at establishing characters. The suspect list is seemingly long, but as a viewer I really had no idea why half of the people would want Leila dead. Yes she was mean to pretty much everyone around her, but was that enough to kill? Anyways, one more person is killed after coming close to discovering Leila's murderer. That death scene was actually done pretty well. The girl is stalked in a dark building by the killer wearing full fencing gear and carrying a bow and arrow.
Eventually we find out the killer's identity, and it's pretty weak to be honest. The acting was OK. It was nice to see Shelley Winters who provided some great comic relief, but this movie was disappointing. Outside of two tense moments, it dragged on too much and was a bit of a bore.
