Snoop Sisters

By victor

Before "Murder, She Wrote" there was... The Snoop Sisters!

Long before Angela Lansbury brightened TV screens as the mystery writing sleuth of Murder, She Wrote, Helen Hayes, the first lady of the American theater, joined forces with film veteran Mildred Natwick to solve crimes as "The Snoop Sisters, " one of four rotating segments during the second season of The NBC Wednesday Mystery Movie.

"The Snoop Sisters" had rather obvious roots in Agatha Christie's Miss Marple mysteries but also tried to be a senior citizen revamping of McMillan and Wife,  which was the product of the same producers. Hayes and Natwick are delightful, but for obvious reasons a show starring two aged performers lacked the slam-bang action that viewers might have preferred in the cop heavy atmosphere of the 1973-74 TV season.

Lacking the wit or clever plotting of Columbo, this series never got off the ground. Even a guest appearance by then red-hot rocker Alice Cooper in one episode failed to enliven the proceedings. After four 90 minute episodes, "The Snoop Sisters" joined the rest of The NBC Wednesday (and at midseason, Tuesday) Mystery Movie segments (Banacek, Tenafly, and Faraday and Company) on the trash heap of cancelled programs.

Your Memories Shared!

I loved all of the Snoop Sisters and am desperate to get my hands on videos of them. I especially loved Do Not Fold, Spindle or Mutilate and the one with Paulette Goddard.
