Sleeping Powder, Wet Paint and the Stolen Jewel
Our mystery opens at Scotland Yard in London where Sir Basil is sending young Inspector Cuff into the wilds of Yorkshire to check on his old friend Sir John. It seems that Sir John’s young daughter has inherited the infamous Moonstone yellow diamond, and misfortune always accompanies that cursed gem.
Meanwhile, at the mansion in Yorkshire, it is a dark and stormy night, with thunder rolling and lightning flashing. Anne, her father, her cousin Godfrey are waiting for Anne’s solicitor fiancé to arrive from India with the priceless gem.
Franklin does arrive with the giant jewel and Anne immediately wears the necklace bearing the glistening gem, even though she is cautioned that it should be placed in a bank vault as quickly as possible.
Anne no sooner puts the valuable bauble around her neck when a bright bolt of lightning hits the power wires outside the house and we are all plunged into darkness. In a scramble of the dark room someone lights a candle and Anne discovers that the necklace with the Moonstone gem had disappeared. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
