A simple puzzle
14 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A thinking man's episode has a man visiting his neighbors, an elderly couple living on an isolated farm, only to find the husband dead in bed, apparently strangled, and the wife out of it. This is a tough one to summarize, but what it boils down to is the town sheriff and district attorney visit the farm in the aftermath of the grisly discovery, accompanied by their wives. While the men search high and low for an answer to the farmer's untimely death, the women quietly discover what happened through simple clues. Now, do they tell the men what they've found? For what it is, the plot is pretty gripping and the teleplay -- based on an actual play -- very well acted. Veteran actors Ray Teal and Ann Harding are the stars.
