Storyline

In a story reminiscent of "Rashomon," Mannix is hired by publishing executive George Diamond to locate Diamond's secretary, Winifred Hill. Hill may -- or may not -- have seen Diamond attempt to push his estranged wife, Stella, into the ocean near his beach house. In a panic, Hill goes into hiding. Diamond claims that she misinterpreted what she saw and tells Mannix he simply wants Hill to know the truth. During the course of his investigation, however, Mannix uncovers several different versions of what happened, including two from George Diamond. Then a murder takes place, forcing Mannix to reconsider the truthfulness of his own client. Written by aldanoli

Rasho-Mannix!
3 December 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Whoever wrote this episode of "Mannix" must have been a fan of Akira Kurosawa, as the style of the show bears a lot of similarity to his famous film "Rashomon"--a film in which the same story is told from three very different viewpoints.

This film begins with a man's secretary and girlfriend coming upon him and his soon to be ex-wife arguing. The soon to be ex falls into the ocean from a cliff but is saved--and the secretary runs away and disappears. When you hear about this story from the husband and wife, the story is very different--and you're pretty sure once the real story is learned that it will be yet another angle on the story. Somehow Mannix needs to figure out the truth--and it won't be easy.

So is this 'Rasho-Mannix' any good? Well, it's decent but not great. Much of this is because Mannix seems to pick up on who's really behind everything a bit easier than you'd expect AND the man even admits (for no clear reason) to Mannix what he'd done! Huh?! Too bad, as it was a lot better than the ending.
