The Snoop Sisters (1974) TV Series:

During the early to mid-1970s, mystery programs were all the rage on prime-time television, or at least hoped to be. Between 1970 and 1978, roughly fourteen primetime mystery shows were launched and eight promptly failed (notably the excellent Ellery Queen).  Nevertheless, the mild hullabaloo during the decade and the success of the NBC Sunday Mystery Movie ( which featured different mystery movies once a week ) prompted the studio to create another mystery rotation series, The NBC Wednesday Mystery Movie.  This series was launched in the autumn of 1971 and featured three new shows, Cool Million ( James Farentino ), Madigan ( Richard Widmark ) and Banacek… For the next season, three new shows were added in the “wheel” : Faraday and Company, Tenafly, and The Snoop Sisters featuring Helen Hayes and Mildred Natwick as sister sleuths.

Above: Helen Hayes, Paulette Goddard and Mildred Natwick.
