Playing for Keeps

Sheesh, I can’t believe I have never seen this 1973 movie--especially since it stars not just Richard Benjamin, Joan Hackett, and James Mason, but also Raquel Welch, James Coburn, and Ian McShane. Looks like I’ll be exercising that Netflix account of mine once more.

You'll really enjoy it. I watched it (again) a couple of months ago, and continue to be delighted in how cleverly written it is ... and surprised at how overlooked it is as a mystery film.

I'm surprised that it's a "forgotten film." It's been a favorite of mine for years. I know that Stephen Sondheim and Anthony Perkins had ideas for a couple of other mystery films, but they never came to fruition.
