First of all, what makes this movie kind of sad is that Elizabeth Montgomery was sick with cancer during the filming and didn't even know it. You can see how skinny she is in several scenes and from interviews with people who worked on it, she was in pain throughout the shoot. She died about one month and a half after filming ended in late March 1995. Plot is about Liz, a newspaper reporter trying to solve a triple murder. This is the second Edna Buchanan movie made with Liz and is quite entertaining as it mixes light drama with small doses of comedy and witty dialogue, this time between Liz and Dean Stockwell playing the local coroner. One funny scene is where Dean opens a morgue vault door only to have champaign and pat'e on the slab instead of a body. When he pops the cork we hear it bounce off the walls and land in something gooey (off camera) he then retorts, "I wish it had landed anywhere, but there". Fun movie, especially if you are a Liz fan but kind of depressing in the fact she passed away soon after.
