Pilot TV-movie
14 August 2004 | by RipshinSee all my reviews

This TV movie was intended as a pilot for an unsold series, starring Eve Arden in the role of a detective, of sorts. Consider it a precursor to "Murder She Wrote." Arden was a fantastic character actress, who could most likely have held her own in a series, which she did, of course, in "Our Miss Brooks." The TV industry today would KILL for a woman of her talent to help sell a series. I am uncertain as to why she could never find success after "The Mothers-In-Law." I guess we consider the "Grease" films as her swan song, although she certainly deserved better. I've always thought that she would have been great in "The Golden Girls" - I wonder if she might have been considered.
