John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands
17 April 2012 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Murder Case" stars real life husband and wife John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands, who had already been married for a decade, remaining so until his death at age 59 in 1989. Diana Justin (Rowlands) is starring in a London play financed by her diamond merchant husband Charles (Murray Matheson). Stranded American actor Lee Griffin (Cassavetes) gets himself cast as her American love interest, quite insistent since the two had a thing going back in the States before she met the wealthy Charles and promptly dumped him without a second glance. Now that she's within his grasp again, quickly falling back into old habits, Lee decides to rig a fatal accident for her husband, who survives and quickly pulls his backing out of his rival's play. The climactic twist makes this one worth watching, featuring such familiar faces as Ben Wright, David Frankham, and John Banner (HOGAN'S HEROES).
