Trivia

A rather more faithful version of Colin Watson's British novel (retaining its original title, setting and character names) was made by BBC Television some five years later as part of its short-lived but fondly-remembered "Murder Most English" series. See more »

A Last Appearance For Rosalind Russell
1 October 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Rosalind Russell enrolls in a lonely hearts service, and after a correspondence meets Douglas Fairbanks Jr. They both appear to be well-to-do, but cracks soon appear in their facades. Meanwhile, cops Ross Martin and Michael Murphy are trying to figure out who has been killing wealthy old women.

Fairbanks and Miss Russell play their roles in a manner that suggests every word they utter is planned and pitched to deceive, clearly intended -- along with the title -- to let the viewer know that both leads are lying. It's a well-made TV movie, directed by Jay Sandrich, with old-timers Kent Smith and Maureen O'Sullivan joining the cast, clearly calculated as a nostalgia festival for an older audience. Miss Russell never appeared in another role on the big or little screen. She died four years later.
