Ellery Queen: Don't Look Behind You

producer morgan series bill

(NBC, 11/19/1971, 120 mins). Pilot for a prospective new Ellery Queen series, marred by the miscasting of too suave Peter Lawford in the leading role. This film, taken from the 1949 mystery by Queen (pseudonym as well as principal character for Frederick Dannay and Manfred Lee), has the sleuth involved in a series of murders, with victims having numerically descending ages and males being strangled with blue cords, females with pink ones.
