One Of These Females Is A Killer
4 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a "whodunnit" with two prime female candidates. Which one is the killer - the wife or the girlfriend? Both have motives, like big bucks in the guy's will? One is pretty and smooth (the girlfriend); the other is shrill and melodramatic (the wife). The latter puts a really interesting twist to this story when she puts herself on trial to try to clear all the rumors about her. The title to this episode is "The Frightened wife" but this woman doesn't convince me she's frightened.

We don't know who killed the man except both a man and women were in on it and the female shot the man. We only see the people from the waist down, shooting the guy who is bound-and-gagged. That's the early dramatic scene which opens this show.

The two main female suspects are interesting contrasts and are played by Marian Seldes (the wife, in here) and Whitney Blake (the mistress). Seldes is still acting at the age of 72 and lately has been in feature films! Good for her. Blake stuck to TV and then retired in 1981. She died in 2002. One of her claims to fame was that she starred in the first episode ever of Perry Mason in 1957,
