Clue is a movie about seven guests, a butler, and a maid, who are all involved in a series of murders. The guests all meet at Hill House, where you learn that Professor Plum works in D.C., where everyone else lives. Colonel Mustard is a client of Miss Scarlet, who is the ex-employer of Yvette, the maid, who had an affair with the husband of Mrs. White, etc. Blackmailer Mr. Boddy gives each guest a weapon and tells them to kill butler Wadsworth to avoid being exposed. Add in Mrs. Peacock's craziness and Mr. Green's clumsiness, and meet a whole group tangled in a web of murder, lies, and hilarity.Written by
After the production concluded, the mansion set was bought and redecorated by the producers of Dynasty (1981), who used it as The Carlton Hotel. See more »
In the first ending, the flashback of Mrs. Peacock screaming about the poisoned brandy shows her shaking the glass violently and throwing it to the ground. In reality, all she did was drop the glass and start screaming. See more »
The end credits begin with "Clue" game cards that are flipped over to reveal pictures of the main characters and the names of the actors that played them. See more »
The DVD version allows viewers to watch the original "A", "B", and "C" endings by themselves (chosen randomly by the DVD player), or to watch the three endings stitched together as on TV and VHS. See more »
Like Clockwise, this is just a movie I've always found very funny. Superbly casting some superlative film talents into the board game roles of Colonel Mustard et al, this throws the greatest over-actor of them all in as the butler and lets rip. The murders start to pile up, getting sillier and sillier (three cheers for the Singing Telegram Girl!) The pace picks up, so that about half an hour before the end the butler starts to exposit and virtually never stops. Oh, and there are three endings, just for good measure. And the last line is an all-time classic.
