The Silver Slipper and the Wallet

In 1950's London people would line up . . . er . . . excuse me . . . . In 1950's London people would queue up for a play outside a theatre, and while waiting they would be entertained by street performers who would sing, tell jokes, stand on their head, or whatever their talent might be, in exchange for the odd coin tossed at them by the people in queue. The Professor, played by Stanley Holloway, is an older gentleman down on his luck who quotes from Henry VIII, to many yawns and very few coins. On this night he is standing outside the front door of The Silver Slipper nightclub next to the theater when a car rushes up and screeches to a stop. The Professor opens the car door for the driver like a doorman would, hoping for a coin in exchange, but the driver slouches over and almost out of the car. The Professor realizes that the man is dead, and he pushes him back into the car, shuts the car door and goes in search of a Bobby. As the Professor and a cop return to the car, it suddenly lurches into action and speeds off into the night! After the copper walks away assuming that the Professor is a bit whacky, the old gentleman looks down and sees a wallet . . . obviously dropped from the dead man's pocket. The Professor picks it up and our detective murder mystery has begun! We discover that the dead man was the owner of the Silver Slipper nightclub, and there are two men who might like to see him dead. First there is his club manager, a young fellow who has secretly married his daughter . . . and then there is the fellow who claims that the club owner was in the process of selling the nightclub to him. Both men want to find the dead man's wallet very badly, knowing that proof of their innocence in his death is contained in that wallet. The Scotland Yard Chief Inspector and both men are certain that the Professor has the wallet, and his life is now in danger . . . but wait just one minute . . . when the Professor is conked on the head and his room searched, both of the suspects have a rock-solid alibi for the time of the midnight episode . . . and there are no more suspects at all . . . yet someone . . . someone we will certainly not suspect . . . someone is after the Professor and the wallet, and will stop at nothing to get that wallet! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
