Whodunnit? The Man Or One Of The Two Women?
23 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A wealthy young woman is parked with this guy and a robber comes up and winds up killing the guy. We don't see any of that, only the girl coming home and being hysterical with her dad, telling him what happened. These two were played by well-known actors. Kent Smith played the dad and Ruta Lee, his daughter. The always-beautiful Ruta, by the way, is still alive and working.

Frank and another cop, "Sgt. Lou Pulaski" (John Doucette, one of the more familiar TV actors of the '50s and '60s, a guy who used to play various villains on many shows), try to piece together what happened, find clues from the forensic specialist and find the murderer.

In a nutshell, this case boils down to three suspects: two jealous women or a wacky cemetery worker. In my mind, it had to be one of the women. It was an entertaining episode, thanks, however, to the cemetery worker "Lennie." He was, by far, the most interesting....but did he do it, with all the clues pointing toward him?
