Myrna, the Newspaper Reporters, the Keystone Kop, and the Smoking Gun

Sunday 4 January 1970, movie and television director Robert Sinclair was at his Montecito home with his wife when an intruder broke into their home. Robert Sinclair rushed at the burglar to protect his wife Heather, and was brutally stabbed to death as his wife, Heather Angel, watched. The intruder rushed from the home but was later caught and tried for murder. 64-year-old Sinclair was no longer working when he was murdered, but Heather Angel was appearing regularly on the “Family Affair” television sit-com starring Brian Keith and Sebastian Cabot.

Heather Angel was born in farm community Headington, Oxford, England and by the age of seventeen was acting at the Old Vic. When she was twenty years old, she was offered a Hollywood contract, and while never becoming a superstar, she appeared regularly in movies and later television.

In this newspaper reporter crime adventure, she is the mysterious lady in a notorious nightclub holding the smoking gun when the owner of the nightclub is murdered. A suave and fast-talking newspaper reporter played by Roger Pryor not only manages to get a photograph of the lady holding a smoking gun, but quickly takes her into hiding so that he can have the credit for bringing the lady murderer to the cops.

On the way to this murder, we will meet slightly light-headed policeman Hugo Meyer, played by Ford Sterling, the original police chief in the silent Keystone Kops comedy adventures. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
