Well Remembered
17 November 2008 | by BarrieMiltonSee all my reviews

This was a pilot for the great character actress Kate Reid. She played a homicide detective (sort of a female Columbo. Mrs. Columbo anyone??). here Kate investigates a series of murders surrounding a wealthy millionaire. I remember one person suffocates in a sauna, another is crushed by a barbell, and the beautiful Lynda Day George (Where is she?? She is sorely missed.) swan dives into a swimming pol with a broken light and is electrocuted.

Kate was aided in her investigations by a young A. Martinez and her superior, Martin Balsam If I remember the TV movie was a sleeper hit and there was talk of a follow-up. Alas, as it is in Hollywood, it was only talk.

Incidentally, the film ended with Kate having solved the murders. She suddenly pauses and gives her famous laugh. "I just realized something" she howls, "the butler did it!"
