Myra’s In Love, Please Murder Me!
Craig is a wealthy lawyer, and his best friend Joe is a wealthy man who owns a chain of grocery stores. Myra is Joe’s young and beautiful wife. Angela Lansbury is Myra, the beautiful trophy wife of the wealthy grocery store mogul.
As our adventure opens Craig is confronting his best friend Joe. Craig will tell Joe that he is in love with Myra, and Myra is in love with him. Joe is devastated, but quiet and calm. Joe tells his best friend Craig that he must think a bit before divorcing his wife so that she can marry his best friend.
Joe thinks about his wife and his best friend, and at the end of the day his mind is made up. He writes a letter, seals it in an envelope and gives it to his business partner and asks him to mail it before the day is over. Then Joe calls his wife Myra and tells her that he is coming home to have a chat with her about their future.
Joe drives home, walks into his home, up to the bedroom where Myra is waiting in bed. As soon as the door closes behind Joe as he is facing his cheating wife, a gunshot rings out, and Joe is dead. Lawyer Craig, deeply in love with Myra, successfully defends her in court and is able to prove to the jury that Myra shot her husband in self-defense.
Then, we watch Myra and Craig celebrating her freedom and their upcoming wedding. As they are celebrating and planning their future, there is a knock at the door. Lou, Joe’s business partner in the grocery store business enters and tells Craig that he must speak with him privately. Alone in the library Lou confesses that his partner Joe had given him a sealed envelope to mail and he had forgotten to mail that letter, and alas did not remember the letter until this evening.
Lou pulls the letter out of his pocket and tells Craig that it is addressed to him. Craig opens the letter from his deceased best friend, and his world ends. Craig learns that Myra, the woman he loves, has really murdered her husband and Craig’s best friend in cold blood. That is not all that Craig learns from the letter. Now we must have another murder. . . . One murder is not enough. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
