User Reviews

Comedy mystery starring Helen Hayes and Mildred Natwick. A pair of eccentric elderly sisters investigate the real-life murder of a horror film actor's wife.
28 September 2003 | by 40smoviesSee all my reviews

In the days before Murder She Wrote, The Snoop Sisters were TV's no-longer-young literary sleuths, writing mystery novels and solving crimes. This TV tale involves Vincent Price as guest star, a horror film actor past his prime (Typecasting? Never! ) who is under suspicion of the murder of his wife. Roddy McDowall appears with Mildred Natwick and Helen Hayes (the Snoops) as one of the other suspects in this enjoyable slice of low-key whodunit.
