Fun flashback to my younger days.
More then a decade before Jessica Fletcher started having friends and relatives killed off by the dozen, 30 years before a visit by Rosemary & Thyme would equal a banshee’s call, there were the Snoop Sisters.
Two of the great movie and theater legends, Helen Hayes and Mildred Natwick starred as Ernesta Snoop and Gwendolyn Snoop Nicholson respectively were a pair of sisters that wrote fictional mysteries and solved real ones by knowing someone that knew someone.
It was a delightful showcase for the two actors and you could tell that they had fun with the roles.
Unfortunately, the series only lasted 5 episodes, but that was NBC’s fault, rather then a flaw in the show.
While it’s now somewhat dated (look at the hair styles and “cool” lines), the acting and plots are just plain fun. It is a true pity that Art Carney did not continue in the role as Barney.Read full review
