This was an entertaining opening episode for a series that deserved to have had a rather longer run. The period details are nicely arranged (although having Guy Lombardo play himself as he had been a full thirty years earlier is a bit cheeky) and the manner in which Ellery Queen solves the murder almost as soon as he arrives at the scene of the crime is unexpected and funny - the solution turns out to depend on a detail about the New York telephone system which was no longer accurate when the show was first aired in the 1970s. One question, though - why was the well-known character actor Thayer David uncredited in the brief but important role of the murder victim?
