Ellery Queen: The Adventure of the Two-Faced Woman

The murder of a socialite who just purchased $350,000 worth of paintings has its underpinnings in events that happened years before in 1922 France. It's a hard road to the truth and Ellery takes the correct one while Simon Brimmer once again crashes and burns.

Vera Miles' best known role is that of Lila Crane in the classic Alfred Hitchcock shocker Psycho.

Edward Mulhare should be familiar as Captain Gregg on the 1968-70 ABC/NBC comedy The Ghost and Mrs. Muir.
