Trivia

The train assembled by AMTRAK was berthed in the holding-train repair yard South of Union Station. Requiring three days prep, Construction and Set Dressing installed carpeting, lighting wall fixtures and window draperies in the specific train car interiors to be filmed. Included were chairs and tables in the cleared passenger bench car used for the dining car. This dining rail car had an additional "lambrican-eyebrow header" installed over the train window walls concealing added overhead fixtures to light the train car's ceiling and interior, which also concealed the overhead drapery hardware. The baggage car, where the dog traveled, was dressed with shelving, compartment box units stacked with suitcases, trunks, plus shipping cases. Another passenger lower level car matched additional wall lighting fixtures, which construction had rented from Twentieth Century Property's Art Deco fixtures department. After filming, the train returned to the train storage yard where the AMTRAK train passenger cars were cleared of all the film's additions, dismantled by the film's crew See more »

A real movie
17 June 2014 | by (Azusa, CA) – See all my reviews

"Murder, She Wrote: South By Southwest," is a title that's an obvious homage to Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 classic suspenser, "North By Northwest," This is because while a great portion of the Hitchcock classic takes place aboard a train, so does this thriller - and a thriller, it is! I loved Angela's "Murder, She Wrote, series - but this is so much more competent; so much more professional - it's production so much more stylish; so much more like a motion picture.

I'm watching this for the first time right now as I type this because I was drawn to record a wonderfully positive review. On my on screen TV guide, some igno gave it one star...one lousy star! I'm sorry, but this is a full three-star mystery! This is one of the finest, if not the finest, Jessica Flether "murder, She Wrote" mysteries of them all!
