I love Helen Hayes in everything I've seen her in and when she pulls that hat pin out and it's the key that will let her get into anything, but mostly just uses it to start the car, that is priceless. (I really miss seeing ladies wearing those hats.) And the fact that she can't drive very well and although everyone around her is running into everything to get out of her way, but she never has a wreck, is classic. You just have to sit on the edge of your seat expecting her to run into something or someone.
The quality of the DVDs is excellent and, although it's from the 70's, the video is not grainy at all.
Definitely 5+ stars and anyone who loved "Miss Marple" and "Murder: She Wrote" will really enjoy this series.
NBC had a hit with their Sunday NBC Mystery Movie anthology, they decided to expand it to Wednesday night. The original rotating schedule included Banacek, Madigan, Faraday and Company and Cool Million. Faraday and Cool Million were quickly cancelled. The producers remembered the aforementioned special and decided to adapt the MOW.
Instead of four stars two were kept. Hayes was fresh off her deserved Oscar win for Airport and her charm is still was used to the hilt. Natwick was perfect as her sister.
Ernesta and Gwendolyn Snoop write mystery novels but they get their inspiration from real cases they solve. While the stories were very pedestrian, the stars made it enjoyable. But they could not save it from cancellation after five episodes.
The following are the five episodes:
The Female Instinct
Corpse and Robbers
Fear is a Free Throw
The Devil Made Me Do It
Black Day for Bluebeard
Note: Mildred Natwick won an Emmy for Best Actress in a Limited Series beating her costar, Helen Hayes
However, just as I still enjoy the Victorian and early 20th century crime stories, so I enjoy this series. It is fun to see some of the stars from my own childhood that are in these films. One of the other reviewers listed all of the titles and indeed, you have all of these. I think I liked the The Female Instinct show the best as I do love Art Carney. It was also a hoot to see that one of the shows "introduced" Alice Cooper!
If you are interested in vintage television and classic detective stories, I think you will find this series entertaining and a pleasant diversion.
Great show, love that Milly Natwick! So glad it's finally coming to DVD.
