Murder mystery with appropriate title.
26 August 2000 | by dh273See all my reviews

Very involved for a short. The film truly shows how a silent can show an involved soap opera type plot into a short. I had to watch the film several times to follow the mystery and how it unfolded. Anita Stewart truly showed her ability here as it was one of her earliest films.
