    • Who Killed Julie Greer?
      9/26/61
      9.5
      Aspiring actress Julie Greer is talking to someone on the phone when there is a knock at the door. She puts the phone down and answers the door. A person, who we don't see but who Julie obviously knows, enters. She tells the person to quit and leave. The person attacks and strangles her. Julie's last words are to repeatedly scream out "George Townsend". Julie's body is discovered by her roommate Ann Farmer. Millionaire police captain Amos Burke, with the assistance of fellow officers Phil Winslow and Joe Nolan, investigate the case. A little black book containing the names of many men, whom Julie may have had affairs with and dumped over the years, is found. The names include: Rex, the singing cowboy star of a TV series; Dr. C.Z. Coombs, a veterinarian; Joe Montana, a punch-drunk prize fighter; Roy, a respected married judge and old friend of Burke; Zambini, the owner of the laundromat that Julie frequented; and Fairchild, the bartender at a beatnik dive where Julie used to hang out. Burke also keeps looking for the elusive George Townsend and for the person who was on the phone when Julie was killed. Townsend suddently calls the police, after seeing his name in the paper, and turns himself in. Having previously interviewed Mrs. Pierce, Townsend's former landlady (who happens to be blind), Burke brings her to the police station to participate in a police lineup! He hopes that she will be able to ID Townsend's voice. Unfortunately, she identifies Phil Winslow's voice as that of her tenant. It seems that the George Townsend they have in custody is a drunk who just wanted the notoriety. Later, Burke discovers that Dr. Coombs was the person on the phone. Figuring out who the real killer is, Burke arranges for Dr. Coombs to report that he heard Julie call out the words "Forever Rose", which just happen to be the words tattooed on Phil Winslow's shoulder. Mrs. Pierce hadn't made a mistake - Winslow was the tenant, registered under the phony name of George Townsend, and was indeed one of Julie's lovers and her killer.moreless
