[Error: unknown template qotd]Hildegarde Withers   by Stuart Palmer. I love the novels and the short stories, and the movies (when I can get them)  Murder on the Blackboard i had on tape for a while and is actually brilliant and still feels fresh after 70 years, which is saying something. 

What I found particularly intriguing is that in the books Piper and Miss Withers have a very very low key relationship, you know they care deeply about each other but there is a sense that sexuality is something that happens to other people. In the movies there is sexual tension and actual innuendo and it works. Edna May Oliver and James Gleason play off each other perfectly it's a real treat to watch.

::::sigh::: Still waiting for the DVD:::::::
