On February 10th 2006 Paul Daniels purchased a DVD of an old who-dunnit? film called Murder in the Blue Room. Paul paid $18.45 for the DVD which was sold by the appropriately named oldtimeentertainment!
The film is more than a who-dunnit? it is a musical mystery that chronicles the endeavors of a young couple(Nan and Steve) who attempt to solve a mysterious murder that occurred in a brooding old home.
The story is intriguing; in this old mansion there is a mysterious bedroom, the blue room, where a man died several years earlier, and now, anyone who spends the night in the room disappears!
After the murder, the house was abandoned and rumours abound that the place was haunted. The couple are determined to quell the rumors and solve the mystery themselves while holding a housewarming party. The victim was the father of the new bride Nan (Anne Gwynne). The groom Steve, (Donald Cook)was the victim's best friend. Grace Mcdonald , Betty Kean ,and June Preisser, as The 3 Jazzy-Belles, steal the movie with their comic antics, jive dance routines, and songs(Boogie Woogie Boogie Man)
All in all it is described as a great murder-mystery-comedy-musical combination that is truly enjoyable.
The seller left positive feedback for Paul saying, "Quick payment. Great eBayer.Smooth transaction. thank you~~~~~~~~~" and Paul left positive feedback for them also saying, "Very good. Thank you."
I think Paul will enjoy this movie. Not a lot!
