The Lightest of Black Comedies
18 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This program is well-written, well-paced, and fun from the start. No drama here. Even in grind-'em-out TV, "A Matter of Murder" shows that if the writing and acting are good, inexpensive on-studio-grounds productions can be excellent.

Telly Savalas, Patricia Crowley and Darren McGavin are the lead players, and I liked Marc Rambeau who looked like a star to me. His career and life were short. Likewise for Lee Kinsolving of the same era.

For me, "A Matter of Murder" ages better than most 1950's and 1960's material because Patricia Crowley's character is smart, complete, and even dominant. She isn't the white-glove-wearing housewife that are seen so much in this period (see, for example, Julie Adams in "A Little White Frock").

Have fun.
