Storyline

Due to a tragic incident Larry "Cash" Carter, a successful Broadway director, winds up in a small town in Connecticut working in community theater. With an eye for details and a view of the criminal mind, Cash soon finds that he is in demand by the local detective when the town's leading industrialist is found shot dead. While there were many people who may have wanted him dead, it is up to Cash to narrow the list of suspects. When the second murder is committed clues left at the scene lead Cash to the identity of the killer. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

A fun made-for-TV period piece
3 July 2000 | by capitan_movieSee all my reviews

Nothing too heavy, but a wonderful romp into the late 1930's. An A&E murder mystery true to all the marvelous classic conventions with fine performances by all. Plenty of humor, good feeling, and eccentric characterizations more than make up for a rather spartan plot. Just relax and enjoy.
