| Obscure, but a great film!
Andy Griffith plays police chief Abel Marsh and is just a little more serious than Sheriff Andy Taylor of Andy's TV show fame.

Here, were have a "cosy murder" mystery and Andy has to follow up on all the clues. The supposed dead girl has been intermittently seen driving through town in her convertible. A cast of timeless characters promotes the film's upbeat, humorous undertones.

The casting is very good but the locations and sets are superb. This film is SORT OF one of a series of three films and this one is the best of the three. The others are "Deadly Game" and "Winter Kill," although, in the latter film, Andy plays Sheriff Sam McNeill -- still, it's the same sort of movie in the same sort of location. I love all three of these mysteries.

These films are very tough to find on the video market so you may have to catch them on television.
