“Prescription Murder” Review
Prescription: Murder (1968) | Amazon
Directed by Richard Irving. With Peter Falk, Gene Barry, Katherine Justice, William Windom. A psychiatrist uses a patient he is having an affair with to help him kill his wife, but his perfect alibi may come apart at the hands of a seemingly befuddled LAPD lieutenant.
A 2 hours long pilot movie that felt at first more like a James Bond film than a murder mystery, part of that I suppose is the setting itself, which is the late ’60’s. Peter Falk is super young here compared to when I know him from the later episodes of the show (never watched, but saw the trailers!), so that gave another bit of Bond fell to it as well.Favorite This!
