It’s 1928, and the birth of the talking picture has turned Hollywood on its ear. That is until famed silent movie star Sly Mandrake turns up dead on the set of his latest picture THE SINGING SHEIK. What seems to be a tragic accident now looks more and more like a Hollywood hit job. Who could have bumped off this heartthrob of the silver screen?
Could it have been controlling director Burly Bellows, frustrated with Mandrake’s lack of elocution? Or was it his vengeful scene-stealing scene partner, emerging starlet Nettie Potts? Was it famed LA mobster Hoochie Coodilinni, or could it have been Mandrake’s scorned lover Zelda Pinchbottom?
Pour yourself a glass of giggle water and do the Bunny Hug in this legendary Jazz Age whodunit, TERROR IN TINSELTOWN.
