Storyline

Mr. Princey's batty daughter, Millicent, has just killed the schoolmaster, with whom she was in love, when she found out he had gotten engaged to another woman. A murderess in the family? That won't do. Mr. Princey has a shallow dimwit for a son and a wife who, whatever her other qualities, is no good when it comes to covering up a murder. Mr. Princey takes it upon himself to keep Millicent out of prison or the madhouse. Good luck is on his side when Captain Smollet stops by for a visit. Captain Smollet, it seems, has just as much a motive for murder as Millicent. Written by J. Spurlin

Weak start to Season 2
3 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

AH Presents has a handful of settings it rotated through, and this is one of them: upper class twits on the prowl. It becomes apparent early on that a Father is coaching his family on how to cover up a socially-inconvenient murder. The daughter is an irritating pool of tears. IMDb shows the actress as having only about half a dozen jobs in her life. Understandable.

But Cedric Hardwicke isn't bad as faah-ther (AH used him in Rope), and the great John Williams appears. I kind of like the calculating mendacity of the dad. I didn't get the ending at first as my attention was drifting.

Not a good start to Season 2.
