An excellent mystery!
21 January 2002 | by normvSee all my reviews

A very clever and interesting mystery! It's great fun to watch the 2 detectives insult (and make fun of) stuffy butlers and British Majors, etc.

The method of the killings is extremely clever; the viewer will never guess how it was done!

Also, Joyce Compton (finally!) plays a sexy starlet, instead of her usual "dizzy broad" role.
