How To Succeed....At Murder
March 19, 1966

Written by Brian Clemens
Directed by Don Leaver

Plot Summary

Top business executives are dying and their secretaries are named as their replacements. Could the women be plotting to take over the world?

My Thoughts

Typical Clemens Season 4 & 5 fluff, although it does have its moments.

Plot Oversights

How is it that these "20th Century Amazons", ruthless coorporate climbers that they are, so intent upon the "ruination of all men" and dedicated to women running their own businesses have no name recognition when it comes to Emma? According to The House That Jack Built, Emma is supposed to be famous for having taken over her father's business, Knight Industries, at the age of 22 (it was in the papers, even). Yet none of these women have a clue as to who she is. Do they not catch up on the news now and then?
