The Mirror Is Two-Faced
4 July 2009 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

A sensational San Francisco murder trial comes to an end with the acquittal of Ross Martin (as Paul Marlin) for the murder of his wife. Still, citizens think Mr. Martin killed his older, wealthy wife for her money. Martin's attorney, Leslie Barrett (as Daniel Cascomb), advises his tired client to get out of town for a vacation. Martin finds trouble follows him, in the form of mysterious Ed Kemmer (as Roger Wiley), his dead wife's young brother. Martin thinks Mr. Kemmer is out to kill him, due to a vision he sees in his mirror.

It's always nice to see Martin, so good as Artemus Gordon in "The Wild Wild West" (1965-1969), in other roles; he was a versatile actor. Martin and the supporting actors play their scenes very well, from handsome Kemmer (the model for Sleeping Beauty's prince), to lawyer Barrett (who found Victoria Winters guilty of witchcraft), to craggy bartender Rusty Lane. The recycled "One Step Beyond" sets are still terrific, although the story is ultimately unsatisfying. With an obtrusive ending narration, it's all for naught.

**** Echo (6/2/59) John Newland ~ Ross Martin, Ed Kemmer, Leslie Barrett
