MURDER-MYSTERY. Adapted from the story by Agatha Christie. At a high-society costume ball, Lord Cronshaw is found stabbed in the heart with a kitchen knife, and his fiancée is mysteriously found dead at her home. The sensational case becomes a cause célèbre, and Scotland Yard must call on famed detective Hercule Poirot to help investigate the mysterious deaths in which the suspects at the ball were dressed as commedia dell’arte characters. Clues include six porcelain figurines, a green silk pompon, and a curtained recess. With dramatic flare, Poirot invites the suspects to attend a special harlequinade, where he finally reveals the murderer.
