Storyline

Jessica isn't looking forward to tell Cabot Cove that her historical research for Founder's Day proves the captain was actually a pirate and fought on the British side, against Washington's troops. Businessman Charles Woodley lands in hospital after the surging of a car without driver which seemed to be pursuing local Ethan Cragg. Local inventor Daniel O'Brien, who devised a remote control system for cars before he was fired, denies having agreed to a meeting with his former employer Woodley, shortly after the car under remote control strikes again, killing Woodley's 50% Boston business partner, Dean Merrill. Daniel's heir, Tony Holiday, is back in town to present his bride, Leslie Andler Sheriff Amos Tupper happily 'allows' Jessica to 'observe for her next book', in fact doing the sleuthing with and without Amos, who arrests Daniel just for being most likely to have controlled the killer car....

June Allyson & Van Johnson together again...
28 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As per usual in 'Murder, She Wrote,' there is a murder. Surprise, surprise. Jessica must go about solving the crime. Guest starring is Van Johnson and June Allyson. They respectively portray Daniel O'Brien and Katie Simmons. Daniel is an inventor. Katie is an old friend of Daniel's who is visiting. They both become twisted up in the mystery murder. As much as I love 'Murder, She Wrote,' Allyson and Johnson make the entire episode. It is so great to see Van and June playing opposite each other again. I would take them in any role but these roles do them justice. It helped rekindle that old sort of feeling I'd get from watching them in their movies from the 1940s.
