Classic comedic mystery

A classic Hollywood mystery in which a gossip columnist infiltrates a party full of actors, each of whom fears she is ready to reveal their deepest secrets. So the columnist is murdered. Right? Wrong. But then, why would someone kill the starlet and try to kill the studio head? The answer lies in a fascinating but little-known historical conspiracy. Everyone involved will have fun with this one, particularly the cast, the costumer, and the props master–and, most assuredly, the audience.
