The Norths take a weekend getaway in the country but spend the weekend solving a murder.
Mr. & Mrs. North was a great radio program. But perhaps television hadn't developed into a quality medium yet when this, the first episode of its TV run, was broadcast in 1952. Although Richard Denning and Barbara Britton are fine as the title characters, the supporting cast seems to have been culled from the worst community theatres. Rita Johnson as Lily Storm is perhaps the worst; like most amateurs, she never seems to know what to do with her hands. The story is OK: Mr. & Mrs. North leave for a weekend in the country. When they arrive, their hostess seems to have vanished. Only for die-hard fans of the stars, the radio program, or classic TV. If you search for this on DVD, beware the TV Guide/Genius Entertainment copies. They substitute new music over the titles, and it's a poor fit. The same is true for their Dragnet and Sherlock Holmes DVD's. How do you justify dubbing over the Dragnet theme?
