Storyline

Due to a tragic incident Larry "Cash" Carter, a successful Broadway director, winds up in a small town in Connecticut working in community theater. With an eye for details and a view of the criminal mind, Cash soon finds that he is in demand by the local detective when the town's leading industrialist is found shot dead. While there were many people who may have wanted him dead, it is up to Cash to narrow the list of suspects. When the second murder is committed clues left at the scene lead Cash to the identity of the killer. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

A great whodunit!
10 February 2003 | by (WASHINGTON D.C.) – See all my reviews

I love this movie.The time period sets & characters were very engrossing.I was truly surprised as to the outcome of this movie.I thought I had it all figured out.This film reminds me of the board game "Clue".I will probably purchase this movie.There is a little bit of "CHINATOWN" in the movie's plot.Terrific acting & use of guile to fool the viewing audience.Very entertaining.I hope WILDER reprises his role.
