In Genoa, rising opera singer Andrea Beaumont wanders in foggy streets, frightened of a voice which scares her saying she will find out before she dies, and drops a scarf which is picked up. Jessica enjoys Stella Knight's opera rehearsal, but director Drew Granger, also Andrea's ex-fiancé, is impossibly moody and cancels dinner. The police reports Andrea was found attacked in the street, but the doctor finds nothing wrong with her, so he just prescribes rest; her husband Jonas Cole arranges for extra security. Genoese Inspector Piero Amato suggests it's all merely a theatrical stunt. When Andrea tells Jonas she's returning to work, she gets a call with another dead threat. Amato now insists they leave her protection to the police- the NYPD has faxed her stalker there, Albert Garmes, was released five weeks earlier but never misses parole there.

Not an original for Murder, She Wrote
30 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

I have always enjoyed "Murder, She Wrote" episodes with Angela Lansbury as the main character, Jessica Fletcher. However, "Murder in High C" was a disappointment. A mysterious and obviously disguised voice in the Genoa fog speaks of imminent death to a beautiful opera singer. The woman in fear and shock tells others, her dutiful husband standing by her side in support. Then, the same voice with the same message comes via repeated phone calls. Murder attempts appear to take place. There is a prime suspect who could easily be the villain planning the crime. The prime suspect gets killed. The danger is over, or is it? It sounds like a great murder mystery. It is, but this "Murder, She Wrote" episode is not the original of this story. Watch the more gripping 1960 movie "Midnight Lace" with Doris Day, Rex Harrison, and Myrna Loy. The cities are different, London vs. Genoa. The beautiful woman is an heiress rather than an opera singer. But, the voice in the fog, on the phone, the murder attempts, and the would be villain getting killed are all there. And the danger being over? Well, you'll have to watch it to find out. Compare it to this "Murder, She Wrote" episode and see if you agree that "Murder in High C" is interesting, but "Midnight Lace" is far more satisfying.
