Is Poor Eddie The Killer?
20 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Warner Klemperer of "Colonel Klink" fame is among the guest stars here. He gets top billing among them, but Kevin Hagen should have, since he plays the principal suspect "Eddie Ferguson."

Eddie's wife was just stabbed to death, making it four women murdered in the neighborhood..... but, hold on: Eddie looks to be a nutcase. Although he is in the hospital, torn with grief over his wife's death, he looks and sounds a little goofy. He swears he saw the killer's face in a window, but could he have seen his reflection? Could it be that he's the one who killed his wife and the others?

In many respects, the mystery in here is more than obvious after we've watched the first 5-10 minutes and several of the suspects. I figured it out quickly (so it must be obvious) while "Det. Frank Ballinger" (Lee Marvin), our hero, takes a bit longer to add two-and-two.

By the way, I didn't recognize "Col. Klink" of "Hogan's Heroes," the mid '50s-early '60s hit TV show. I was shocked when the saw the ending credits and saw it name listed first and in bigger type." This was a decent episode, despite figuring it out early on, but it's a little talky overall.
