Everybody Loved Irma . . . To Death
Our murder mystery begins with a movie. We are at a movie studio and filming is under way for a new motion picture named ‘Falling Star’ and the actors are getting ready for another take on one of the movie scenes.
As soon as the scene has been recorded, we begin to meet the actors, and all attention is focused on the platinum blonde actress in the lead part. Sultry and Sassy Irma Gladden, played by Sultry and Sassy Natalie Moorhead, is loved by nearly every man she meets on screen as well as off screen.
For her part, Irma teases and pleases all of the boys one by one, and then tosses them aside for the next fellow. She has a long string of discarded lovers who are still hoping to have another chance at love with the sexy lady.
After it is established that there are several men and at least one wife who are mad at her, she is murdered after driving home from a Hollywood party. Our detectives are a newspaper reporter, Police Chief Sommers, played by J. Farrell MacDonald, and his goofy side-kick Police Sergeant Delany, played by Fred Kelsey.
As a very early sound motion picture, it was not yet the custom to add background music to movies, so you may notice the lack of music behind the voices and action. There was also minimum actor credits in the early days, and the blonde movie script continuity girl with several dialogue lines has never been identified.
This is a two-fer mystery . . . You need to discover who the killer is, and hopefully someone will be able to identify the blonde actress who was never given any credit for her part in the story. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
