Rather directionless and disappointing.
2 July 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

what does Keenan Wynn's part have to do with crime or the murder?! What's the biggest problem with "What Happened to Morris Perlmutter?"? It's that the episode seems to have practically NOTHING to do with the "Quincy" show. In later years, "Quincy" often did shows where the doctor was in the show less and less and less and less of his forensic skills were needed. Here, I truly think they could have done the show without Dr. Quincy!! It's pretty obvious that the series was nearing the end with this one and even a nice performance by Keenan Wynn couldn't save this one.

The show begins with a robber killing an elderly woman in he home. Her sister, who lived with her, witnesses the crime and can identify the assailant. When Quincy gets involved with the case, he realizes the two women were stage actresses of moderate repute. But, instead of focusing on the crime or forensics, the show soon focuses on a man that attends the funeral--Morris Perlmutter (Wynn). Most of the rest of the show is a story about the elderly and senility, as Morris attempts a big comeback--one he isn't sure he's up to.

The bottom line is that this is NOT about Dr. Quincy and he's barely in the thing. I would have instead liked to have just seen the Wynn story on its own. A weak, weak episode indeed.
