The Case of the Missing Picture

1947 Hollywood is on stage as we poke our noses into movie making at Majestic Studios. There is a new actor on the rise, Vic Morton, played by Kenneth Farrell, who sings like Sinatra and wows the ladies on the big screen . . . there is only one tiny little problem . . . he can't sing a note.

Vic was a horn tooter in a big band and his buddy Bogie Mann, played by the great character actor Chill Wills, was the singer for the band, but his face wasn't what Hollywood was looking for . . . so they went to Hollywood as a team - Bogie Mann would do the singing and handsome Vic would lip-sync and become a famous star of the big screen.

All was working well until Vic started getting death threats, and then the killing started . . . No, Vic was not the target of the death threats, but everyone around him was being knocked off, one by one, and Vic seems to be the only logical killer. Now that's a new one . . . the man receiving the death threats is the killer . . . but wait . . . this crime isn't as easy to figure out as it might seem.

As we start suspecting one person and then the next, we are led down a path that takes us no nearer to the real killer, who will be discovered just as soon as we can figure out the subject of the missing picture . . . Yes, there is a photo missing from the wall of Vic's office, and that photo shows the face of the killer . . . When we find that photo we will know, along with hot-shot reporter Jimmy McDonald, played by Edward Norris. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy both the scenes of 1947 Hollywood and a pretty good whodunit murder mystery. Oh, did I mention that the song the crooner sings is 'Heartaches' - a 1947 number one song for twelve weeks in a row?
