Description by OLDIES.com:
Six years after he completed his long run as Sheriff Andy Taylor on "The Andy Griffith Show," the beloved TV star returned as a small-town lawman in Winter Kill. Griffith brought the same common sense and friendly, laconic style to his new role, but Police Chief Sam McNeill has something more challenging than Mayberry's town drunk to deal with: life-and-death mystery. The ski resort Sam protects is the target of a serial killer who leaves no clues except taunting messages spray-painted next to the bodies of his - or her - victims. Among the supporting cast, look for a fresh-faced Nick Nolte as a womanizing ski instructor.
WINTER KILL was the pilot film for a potential Andy Griffith TV series, to be titled MacNeil. Griffith plays the easygoing sheriff in a Northwestern ski resort town (actually Big Bear, California). The object of Griffith's attentions is a mysterious serial killer, who leaves puzzling spray-painted messages at the scene of each crime. The plot was adapted from the 1972 James Garner film THEY ONLY KILL THEIR MASTERS, which was set in Southern California. WINTER KILL didn't sell, but Griffith and his producer/manager Richard O. Linke attempted to promote the concept with two subsequent TV movies: ADAMS OF EAGLE LAKE, in which Andy played the same basic character with a different name, and THE GIRL IN THE EMPTY GRAVE (77), wherein Griffith appeared again as Sam MacNeil.
