5.5/10. Inspite of a great cast, the television origins of this film are clearly evident and it would have benefitted by an increase of activity in the editing room. Predictable, trite and not particularly suspenseful. This wannabe Agatha Christie just lacks the style needed to make it work.

[b]Rehearsal for Murder[/b] [color=Red]***[/color]
[i]With Robert Preston and Lynn Redgrave
Directed by David Greene[/i]
In a dark theater, a screenwriter brings together five members of his former theater troupe to supposedly rehearse a script he has written, but it is soon discovered he has actually brought them together to root out a murderer in their mist! An excellent cast does fine work in an intriguing whodunit with a surprising twist. Excellent writing (by the creators of "Columbo", so you know it's good) and acting bring this a notch above most TV movies.
