Ellery Queen Complete Series on 4
The third TV adaptation of the adventures of super-sleuth Ellery
this time set during the 1940s. Queen was a mystery writer who assisted
his father, a detective with the New York Police Department, in solving
murders. Sgt. Velie was Inspector Queen's assistant and Simon Brimmer a
rival detective. Queen's methods were arcane and intellectual rather
than action oriented, and he always astounded his father by arriving at
a correct solution by purely deductive reasoning. In this version, just
before he revealed his solution to the crime, Queen always turned to
the camera and asked the TV audience if they had figured out the
identity of the killer yet -- they had all the clues -- because he was
about to reveal the correct killer as we met the entire slew of
suspects in one room for the ending.
