Did You Know?


Based on the Roy Radin murder case. Radin was a theatrical producer best known for reviving the old Vaudevillian shows. On Friday, May 13, 1983, Roy Radin stepped into a limousine rented by Karen Jacobs-Greenberger with the intention of going to a restaurant and discussing the business arrangement further. About a month later, his body was discovered in a California canyon. He had been repeatedly shot in the head and a stick of dynamite had been set off in his mouth. The story behind Radin's death was a labyrinthine tangle mostly involving drugs. Greenberger turned out to be a woman of many names and interests. Although producer Robert Evans was initially suspected of the crime, Greenberger was eventually convicted. See more »

The Frozen Dead
30 June 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The frozen body of a fledgling Broadway producer is discovered after it's being dumped in a restaurant freezer and there for over five years. That makes it a homicide and those three holes in head and chest make it a homicide. Nobody likes cold cases especially Paul Sorvino and Chris Noth.

They zero in on the responsible parties which turn out to be the deceased's producing partner Frank Converse and the deceased girlfriend Finn Carter who became a star as a result of appearing in the last property the victim produced.

When it gets to the District Attorney it's a question of assigning the blame in portions and who gets the biggest share. It becomes obvious that Carter is the prime mover in the homicide and the motive turned out to be some shady financing of the show itself. For most of the episode Carter seems just out of reach. Not helping is the fact that the actual shooter was picked up on another charge and died in prison. But Richard Brooks is the one who makes the connection between Carter and the deceased hit man which nails her in court for Michael Moriarty.

Jerry Orbach says he loves it when they're stupid, I love it when they outsmart themselves.
