It's been a few years, but I remember thoroughly enjoying this movie. I've listened to the book on tape. Mrs. Polifax is a very interesting character.
She is well played by Angela Lansbury. She shows how strong and smart an older woman can be. I also like the slight hint that the younger attractive man is somewhat smitten with the older woman, and why shouldn't he be. I'm a big Angela Lansbury fan. I have most of the "Murder She Wrote"'s on tape.
I remember the man in the film being very attractive. I was watching Karate Kid 2 and realized that he is in that movie. I would love to see the movie again but have no idea where to get it. If anyone knows, please email me. Thanks.
