VINTAGE FILM Murder by Death

Murder by Death

The likes of Nick and Nora Charles, Charlie Chan, Sam Spade, Hercule Poirot, and Miss Marple – vintage film characters all – are at once suspects and sleuths at the scene of an English country house murder mystery, hosted by Truman Capote. Neil Simon’s script both parodies and deconstructs the classic crime-solving literature.
