Deadline for Murder: From the Files of Edna Buchanan Reviews:

First of all, what makes this film type of sad is that Elizabeth Montgomery was sick with cancer during the filming and didn't even know it. You can see how skinny she is in few scenes and from interviews with folks who worked on it, she was in pain throughout the shoot. She died about one month and a half after filming ended in late March 1995. Plot is about Liz, a newspaper reporter trying to solve a triple murder. This is the second Edna Buchanan film made with Liz and is quite entertaining as it mixes light drama with tiny doses of comedy and witty dialogue, this time between Liz and Dean Stockwell testing the local coroner. One funny stage is where Dean opens a morgue vault door only to have champaign and pat'e on the slab instead of a body. When he pops the cork we hear it bounce off the walls and land in something gooey (off camera) he then retorts, "I want it had landed anywhere, but there". Fun movie, especially if you are a Liz fanatic but type of depressing in the fact she passed away later after.


A mob member, his moll and the person named to tow them, after their vehicle breaks down are killed in this entry of the Edna Buchanan mystery film series, which would be the last Elizabeth Montgomery would create as Miami Herald reporter Edna Buchanan. The plot is very intricate and involving, making this very entertaining and fast- paced. By the end, you'll be very impressed with its intelligence and its ambitiousness for such a multi-layered story. (You do notice something rather strange right off, if you're very observant, as the murders are taking place.) The only thing really found lacking in the film compared to "The Corpse Had a Familiar face" is that Dennis Farina is nowhere to be found. Without him it does lack a certain pep, but Ms. Montgomery still delivers a nice performance with that usual twinkle in her eye. This was her last TV film she would complete. In fact, during the making of this, she ignored what she thought was the flu, or just a cold, to finish filming it, and by the time she went to the doctor, her colon cancer had already progressed too much to do anything about it. I want I should review this without getting into that, but it is part of her storyline and very relevant to this movie. Watching this may create you sentimental for her "Samantha" and "Bewitched," but her long career of TV-movies trying to break that clean photo made her the Queen of the TV-Movies in the 1970-1990s and this is a nice example of why she remains a favourite of many today.


This is quite an intriguing murder mystery TV movie, starring Elizabeth Montgomery as a reporter who attempts to solve three crimes. The plot is quite entertaining with its mix of humor, suspense, and drama. It's quite a treat seeing Montgomery from her Bewitched heyday star in this, as well as co-star Audra Lindley, from Three's Company fame.Grade B
