Synopsis:

This hilarious spoof of the best of Agatha Christie traditions is set in a country manor house in the 1930s. The assembled cast of characters is guaranteed to delight - Bunting the butler, an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip, a shady French art dealer and his moll, the bumbling police inspector, and a well-meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder wherever she goes. They are all here and all caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the house’s owner.
