Editorial Reviews

The legacy of one of television’s most beloved and acclaimed series continues with 4 full-length Murder, She Wrote movies.  Oscar-nominee Angela Lansbury triumphantly returns as mystery writer Jessica Fletcher, the iconic role for which she received 12 Primetime Emmy Award nominations.  In South by Southwest, a chance meeting on a train embroils Jessica with foreign spies and stolen government secrets.  Then, a getaway to Los Angeles becomes deadly when she tries to solve the murder of a former Soviet KGB officer in A Story to Die For.  Jessica travels to Virginia-and into her own family history-in The Last Free Man, where she discovers that she inherited her sleuthing skills from a relative who worked to abolish slavery.  And finally, it’s off to the Emerald Island in The Celtic Riddle, where Jessica tries to claim an inheritance but faces opposition from a potential killer who’s trying to do anything to get the fortune.  Featuring a stellar roster of guest stars, the Murder, She Wrote Movie Collection has fans following the clues and solving the capers yet again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Movies February 17, 2012
Format:DVD
These 4 films that followed the beloved Murder She Wrote series staring the wonderful Angela Lansbury are just great and fun to watch. They are 1 1/2 hours long so there is more time than the TV show to develop the mystery and the scenery in each film is beautiful (the cinematography for these 4 films feels more like a big budget movie than a TV show). Angela Lansbury is her charming self and really carries these films. I have watched them over and over again. They are great for a Saturday night at home or on a rainy Sunday when you're just sitting around the house. They are family friendly and very enjoyable.

I absolutely adore Jessica Fletcher, English teacher turned mystery writer/ sleuth. I have watched all of the seasons of Murder, She Wrote and am still amazed at how wonderfully this character was portrayed by the great Angela Lansbury. I was a teenager when this show first aired, and remember dreaming of moving to a place like Cabot Cove (and sometimes still do!).

Anyway, I was saddened when this stellar show came to an end after many successful seasons. Then I discovered there were four made-for-TV movies made after the show ended. I managed to catch some of these shows on TV when they were aired, and only lately came to discover that they are available on DVD.

These are four full-length movies. In South by Southwest, Jessica gets entangled in espionage while traveling to El Paso by train. In A Story to Die For, Jessica attends a speakers' conference where a former director of the KGB is murdered. The prized manuscript which supposedly contains some classified information is missing. Jessica initially tries to stay out of it, but inevitably finds herself embroiled in the case. A Story to Die For is my favorite in this collection because it is the most philosophical of all four movies, dealing with friendship, trust, loyalty, and is also quite emotional.

In The Last Free Man, Jessica travels to a university in Virginia and inevitably becomes involved in a case that takes her back to the past, and where she discovers that one of her relatives back during the time of slavery was a progressive Southerner and an excellent sleuth herself (Lansbury plays a dual role here). The Celtic Riddle is set in Ireland and is another riveting mystery. Jessica has to deal with a killer who is determined not to let anyone get a fortune, one where Jessica herself is a beneficiary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Priceless February 19, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just finished watching the four Murder She Wrote movies and was thrilled! I wish network television could get back to the same quiet, yet fascinating types of stories brought to us by Jessica Fletcher and her team. The series was super, the movies even more so. I was familiar with South by Southwest and can remember bits and pieces of two of the others. Seeing them in their entirety was worth the price. I highly recommend this dvd along with all the Murder she wrote DVD's and books. So pull up a comfy chair, settle in with a bowl of buttery popcorn and enjoy this perfect family entertainment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Icing on the Cake February 15, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been hoping for a release of the movies made after the end of the Murder She Wrote series. This is a wonderful addition to my collection which includes all 12 seasons of the show and most of the books. Angela Lansbury is stellar in her performance as Jessica Fletcher. While my favorite episodes will always be those that occur in the tiny town of cabot cove, I realize only so much murder can occur in one place, hence, her later travels. The rumors of her return to do a final appearance as the famous mystery writer slueth is exciting and I truly hope the studio can pull it together. I'd love to add yet another movie to my collection. I highly recommend all 12 seasons, these 4 movies and any of the books. I've seen them all many times and read each book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Angela, After All These Years August 19, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At approximately 90 minutes each, this collection of four made-for-TV movies is not the best, nor the worst, of the long-running series. Ms. Lansbury was approaching 80 when they were shot, and its noticable in the quickness of her motions, but she's still the competent clue-chasing sleuth she was in the Murder, She Wrote television series. She certainly doesn't look as old as she is, and still maintains that inquisitive bounciness that engaged her viewers in the eighties and nineties.
Only two of the movies have name guest-stars- Richard Crenna (of Sylvestor Stallone's Rambo series) in A Story To Die For, and Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show) in The Last Free Man. Ms. Rashad is so competent in her role you wish the movie was a little bit longer, just to showcase her talents.
Of the remaining two, The Celtic Riddle was shot in scenic Ireland, and South By Southwest is about the Amtrak journey from Los Angeles to El Paso. Most of the movies have rather large casts, and hence a lot of suspicious charactors.
This collection is for Murder, She Wrote fans in general, and Angela Lansbury fans in particular.

5.0 out of 5 stars Murder She Wrote: 4 Movie Collectionm February 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Thank goodness there were more movies after the 12th season. My mother is 94 and adores the antics of Mrs. Fletcher She believes that Jessica is the biggest busy- body in the world. Closed captioning is excellent since smom is extremely hard of hearing. A must purchase for good clean entertainment
