Music, Murder and the Deaf Man

Hugh Wiliams plays the part of Nicholas Talbot, a man who worked hard but never got into the money until he met a young struggling opera singer. He fell in love with the singer, played by Greta Gynt, and they got married. He managed her career, she became famous and wealthy, and as our murder thriller begins she is singing opera for the first time in London, the peak of her budding career. As she sings her greatest performance on stage, her husband watches from a balcony booth. In the audience that evening is the man who prosecutes murder cases in the Old Bailey. In the orchestra pit is a Dutch girl playing violin . . . A girl who had a brief love affair with Nicholas Talbot five years previously. After the concert as the violinist is leaving she spots Talbot and strikes up a conversation. She tells him that she is having a bad time of it and would he please come and see her one day. Talbot's wife approaches and they all meet . . . The opera star, her manager husband, and one of his old girlfriends . . . . Not a pleasant meeting for any man, but there it is, and that is that . . . . Except . . . . Later that evening the old girlfriend is murdered . . . . And every single piece of evidence points to Talbot . . . Everything . . . . As the prosecuting counsel is admonishing the jury, there is no doubt in anyone's mind that this man will be facing death soon. His wife is certain that he is innocent, but she cannot find anything that would point to anyone other than her husband . . . until . . . She discovers a sheet of music among the dead violinist's last belongings. She copies the notes on a piece of paper and plays the music often, wondering if it might lead to something important. This leads to that and on the weekend before the jury is given it's task she is off to Scotland because of the music, and she soon comes face-to-face with the killer. He knows who she is from her picture in the newspapers, and when she finds the piece of damning evidence that she needs she rushes to the train to get back to London with the newfound evidence . . . . But the killer also boards the train . . . . and sits in her compartment . . . . and when they are alone he pulls down the window shades and opens the door leading outside . . . . and grabs the opera singer and starts to push her out of the speeding train to her death . . . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
