Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Jessica (Angela Lansbury arrives at the campus of Crenshaw University to receive an honorary degree. Among the faculty members is Professor Joselyn Clover (Polly Bergen), whose daughter Daphne (Mary Kate McGeehan) has penned a notoriously lurid best-selling novel. When the campus "stud" is murdered, both Joselyn and Daphne are suspected--whereupon both confess to the crime in hopes of protecting one another. Figuring that someone else is the guilty party, Jessica offers her services to the local police chief (Jack Kehoe), who unlike our heroine has never handled a homicide case in his life!
