Question 1 of 10
1. Mrs. White, that surly old maid, made us a rather tasty dinner. She could have gone a little easier on the plum sauce on that duck, though, but we dare not say much about that. After we're done she leads us to the 'Billiards Room'. There's a video on the pool table. We watch it and wonder if maybe it is a hint as to who offed Mr. Boddy. Which movie, about billiards, has found you? Hint


Question 2 of 10
2. We skip out into the hall and visit The Conservatory. A rather fishy place, this. A few too many birds, too. And now we have Mr. Green plucking feathers and aquarium water off of himself. He must be the murderer! Or maybe not. But there's a rope on the floor. Next to the unsoiled perch you spot a movie tape about a thing called "Rope". And here you thought the candlestick was the weapon of choice. Poor ol' dead Mr. Boddy. Anyway, which of these best fits the Hitchcock classic "Rope"? Hint


Question 3 of 10
3. Miss Scarlet has invited us into The Library, where Mrs. Peacock (plumage alert! plumage alert!) is serving tea. Is it safe to drink?, you wonder as you sniff it. But, as this mystery progresses, it is safe to assume that she's also going to show us a movie which might help us figure everything out. Which movie, related to books or authors-and NOT real books or authors, just movie ones- do we see as we guzzle down our seemingly non-toxic tea? (And you seem to like the ambiance of all the daisies in this room...but be careful!) Hint


Question 4 of 10
4. Now we're in the Ballroom. Nice music, nice dancing. Never mind that the person who set this place up is now in the morgue. In a quiet part of the background there is yet another old movie playing about a young girl who would just love to go out dancing like these people are. But, darn it, she's a little too focussed on that the unicorn in her house got broken. Could this be another clue? Anyway, which movie is that? Hint


Question 5 of 10
5. I hope you're noticing all the "bird" references in this. Not to mention Tennessee Williams! I think we are closing in on the muderer. Let's go outside. Get a breath of fresh air. But, yikes, people are buried out here! But, of course, there is a VCR standing very close to Vivien Leigh's headstone. New movie, more to see. Let's watch! Melanie Griffith is on there (such big hair...ugh.). We are looking at "Working Girl" (1988). There was an actress in that that was doubly Oscar nominated for her acting that year. That's pretty rare. One for this one and another about monkeys. Who was that? (And what's with that owl hooting wildly up in that spooky old tree?) Hint


Question 6 of 10
6. Mrs. White calls us back in from that graveyard out back. Thank goodness. It was dark and creepy AND people get murdered here so there's no need to be rushing around in dark places. We greet her in The Hallway and she offers us a snack before bedtime nears. "Blech!", says Colonel Mustard, "You fried these fruits before they were even ripe yet! I'll pass on those!". We all do. Over on the wall is a movie blaring away. Someone named Annie Wilkes is in it while Professor Plum passes by us with his nose deep in a book called "The Langoliers". Hmmm. Despite all that what movie has a character named Annie Wilkes in it? Hint


Question 7 of 10
7. The morning has come and, so far, no new murder(s). Seeing as how we're not restricting ourselves to the rules/rooms in the game "Clue", we decide to do breakfast by the pool. Before breakfast is served we hop in for a dip. How invigorating! Just being in the water makes me feel 40 years younger! As we splash around we notice something glistening on the water floor. AHA! A revolver. We have found the murder weapon. As we jump out of the pool the discussion at the table seems to be all about a new movie called "The Passion Of The Christ"(2004). My goodness, everyone seems so fired up about it! The director of the film in question, Mel Gibson, won his Oscar as Best Director in what year? Hint


Question 8 of 10
8. Let's go into The Kitchen. We really should thank Mrs. White for a lovely breakfast but she's too busy shelling peas to really notice. This whole mystery seems complicated and it somehow reminds you of a movie, released in 1997. The film, as does your sudden sleuthing, seems to have twists and turns at every corner. A workaholic millionaire, probably in the same league as Mr. Boddy was, is celebrating his birthday in a most perplexing way! If a taxi that he's in doesn't go underwater after a crash isn't enough he eventually shoots his own brother and jumps off a building! That he mysteriously ends up in another country, with less than 10 dollars in his pocket, just adds to his "fun". What movie is this one?

Answer: (Two Words, the first being "the")
Question 9 of 10
9. As you go to The Bedroom for a morning nap, you lay there thinking when you end up on the bed. It is now known that the weapon used was a revolver and it was found in the pool which is next to the garage. So the deed was done, more than likely, near there. But who killed Mr. Boddy? Could it have been a ghost? The driver is now politely honking out your window to take you back home and you only have minutes to name the murderess. Speaking of ghosts, and "Ghost" is in your head now, what was the friendly ghost's name in that 1990 movie who was trying to avenge his own murder and rescue his still living partner? Hint


Question 10 of 10
10. At last! Now you know who did it! And even where Mr. Boddy's murder happened! And it wasn't Plum or Scarlet or Green or Peacock or White or Mustard. It didn't even happen in this mansion! And it WAS a ghost who perhaps possessed one of them, but who knows? But the one whose trigger finger pulled the plug on Boddy is an actress no longer with us. Scroll up and read the clues; it's all quite clear! Which actress? Hint

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Mrs. White, that surly old maid, made us a rather tasty dinner. She could have gone a little easier on the plum sauce on that duck, though, but we dare not say much about that. After we're done she leads us to the 'Billiards Room'. There's a video on the pool table. We watch it and wonder if maybe it is a hint as to who offed Mr. Boddy. Which movie, about billiards, has found you?

Answer: The Color Of Money

"The Hustler" came out in 1961. "Fast" Eddie Felson, played by Paul Newman, was a geat part. He reprised him later in "The Color Of Money", picking up his first Academy Award as Best Actor in 1986. Whoa! Professor Plum is over there cleaning his chipped nails, not that cleaning will help a bit. Did he take a cue stick to poor Boddy's head? Let's go further...
2. We skip out into the hall and visit The Conservatory. A rather fishy place, this. A few too many birds, too. And now we have Mr. Green plucking feathers and aquarium water off of himself. He must be the murderer! Or maybe not. But there's a rope on the floor. Next to the unsoiled perch you spot a movie tape about a thing called "Rope". And here you thought the candlestick was the weapon of choice. Poor ol' dead Mr. Boddy. Anyway, which of these best fits the Hitchcock classic "Rope"?

Answer: It used unique cinematography.

"Rope", released in 1948, tried to use what was called "the ten minute take" while shooting. It was a rather dizzying business. The camera kept floating around instead of shutting down. Continuity was the goal but confusion was the ultimate result. The film was based on a true case of two young men who murder a fellow for the sheer enjoyment of doing so.

The ever-so-gallant Jimmy Stewart figured the whole dastardly mess out and saved the day. Too bad he's not here to help us figure out who iced the owner of this mansion! The whole color changing about "Rope" wouldn't fit. That did, after all, happen notably in 1939's "The Wizard Of Oz"; "Rope" didn't change color shemes, anyway. And Hitch a caterer? He'd have likely eaten all the food pre-delivery of it.
3. Miss Scarlet has invited us into The Library, where Mrs. Peacock (plumage alert! plumage alert!) is serving tea. Is it safe to drink?, you wonder as you sniff it. But, as this mystery progresses, it is safe to assume that she's also going to show us a movie which might help us figure everything out. Which movie, related to books or authors-and NOT real books or authors, just movie ones- do we see as we guzzle down our seemingly non-toxic tea? (And you seem to like the ambiance of all the daisies in this room...but be careful!)

Answer: She Devil

I am so NOT a fan of Roseanne but her "She Devil", released in 1989, is the right answer here. Meryl Streep's character (exactly what was she doing in this movie?) was a hoity toity romance novelist. All of the other choices were thrown in just off the top of my head but, needless to say, all were better movies than "She Devil" was!
4. Now we're in the Ballroom. Nice music, nice dancing. Never mind that the person who set this place up is now in the morgue. In a quiet part of the background there is yet another old movie playing about a young girl who would just love to go out dancing like these people are. But, darn it, she's a little too focussed on that the unicorn in her house got broken. Could this be another clue? Anyway, which movie is that?

Answer: The Glass Menagerie

Ah, "The Glass Menagerie", well filmed in 1950 and again in 1987, is a great work indeed. It had some TV incarnations, too. It's hard to miss on a Tennessee Williams play. Oh, and there was a big clue there on our halfway solved mystery! We'll just assume, rightly and at this point, the homicide was done with a revolver.

But Mr. Boddy ain't talking much these days. Who did it and where is now the issue. Let's gadabout a bit...
5. I hope you're noticing all the "bird" references in this. Not to mention Tennessee Williams! I think we are closing in on the muderer. Let's go outside. Get a breath of fresh air. But, yikes, people are buried out here! But, of course, there is a VCR standing very close to Vivien Leigh's headstone. New movie, more to see. Let's watch! Melanie Griffith is on there (such big hair...ugh.). We are looking at "Working Girl" (1988). There was an actress in that that was doubly Oscar nominated for her acting that year. That's pretty rare. One for this one and another about monkeys. Who was that? (And what's with that owl hooting wildly up in that spooky old tree?)

Answer: Sigourney Weaver

Sigourney mostly busted the record on that one. If you're Oscar nominated for Best Actress AND Best Supporting Actress in the same year, the odds are you'll win one or the other. But she lost both. "Gorillas In The Mist" was the other film that got her nominated.
6. Mrs. White calls us back in from that graveyard out back. Thank goodness. It was dark and creepy AND people get murdered here so there's no need to be rushing around in dark places. We greet her in The Hallway and she offers us a snack before bedtime nears. "Blech!", says Colonel Mustard, "You fried these fruits before they were even ripe yet! I'll pass on those!". We all do. Over on the wall is a movie blaring away. Someone named Annie Wilkes is in it while Professor Plum passes by us with his nose deep in a book called "The Langoliers". Hmmm. Despite all that what movie has a character named Annie Wilkes in it?

Answer: Misery

"Misery" was arguably one of Stephen King's best translations to film, winning Kathy Bates a Best Actress Oscar in 1990. For some reason his books don't usually become very good movies. There have been exceptions to that, though: "Carrie" (1976) and "Stand By Me" (which was based only on a short story) in 1986 and "The Shining" (1980) come to my mind as some of the better ones.

His TV stuff is much better, I think, mostly because they end up mini-series and don't have to squeeze too much into a two hour format. But, of course, it's all just a matter of personal preference.
7. The morning has come and, so far, no new murder(s). Seeing as how we're not restricting ourselves to the rules/rooms in the game "Clue", we decide to do breakfast by the pool. Before breakfast is served we hop in for a dip. How invigorating! Just being in the water makes me feel 40 years younger! As we splash around we notice something glistening on the water floor. AHA! A revolver. We have found the murder weapon. As we jump out of the pool the discussion at the table seems to be all about a new movie called "The Passion Of The Christ"(2004). My goodness, everyone seems so fired up about it! The director of the film in question, Mel Gibson, won his Oscar as Best Director in what year?

Answer: 1995

Mel might just win another for this latest effort but his first Best Director came for "Braveheart" in '95. "The Passion Of The Christ" nabbed over 20 million dollars on it's first day of release and assuredly got everyone talking, too. The film that launched Gibson into stardom was an Australian movie called "Tim" in 1979.

His "pretty boy actor" image has since become much more intense. Note: I've not seen "The Passion Of The Christ" yet so have no room for legitimate opinion. So I'll just sit here at the Boddy mansion and savor a fresh fruit salad and a glass of mimosa. Pretty nice way to start the day...
8. Let's go into The Kitchen. We really should thank Mrs. White for a lovely breakfast but she's too busy shelling peas to really notice. This whole mystery seems complicated and it somehow reminds you of a movie, released in 1997. The film, as does your sudden sleuthing, seems to have twists and turns at every corner. A workaholic millionaire, probably in the same league as Mr. Boddy was, is celebrating his birthday in a most perplexing way! If a taxi that he's in doesn't go underwater after a crash isn't enough he eventually shoots his own brother and jumps off a building! That he mysteriously ends up in another country, with less than 10 dollars in his pocket, just adds to his "fun". What movie is this one?

Answer: The Game

I just caught this movie again recently and I find it completely intriguing, not to mention completely strange. Michael Douglas's character is, at first, not a very nice guy at all but receives a rather odd gift from his brother (played by Sean Penn) who is a ne'er-do-well.

It's all a game but it doesn't look that way to him! He gets shot at, nearly drowned, embezzled from into bankruptcy, etc. What a fun gift! But, truth is, none of it was completely real, and was (I think) supposed to teach him that life is a game that should be played fairly and nicely (where possible).

It's a pretty good movie.
9. As you go to The Bedroom for a morning nap, you lay there thinking when you end up on the bed. It is now known that the weapon used was a revolver and it was found in the pool which is next to the garage. So the deed was done, more than likely, near there. But who killed Mr. Boddy? Could it have been a ghost? The driver is now politely honking out your window to take you back home and you only have minutes to name the murderess. Speaking of ghosts, and "Ghost" is in your head now, what was the friendly ghost's name in that 1990 movie who was trying to avenge his own murder and rescue his still living partner?

Answer: Sam

"Ghost" is a modern and effective 'weeper'. Funny most of the time but deadly serious at the core all the time. Patrick Swayze played the deceased 'good' guy and Demi Moore played the frazzled, but beautiful, Molly. But it was Whoopi Goldberg, that fake and then (oops) suddenly real psychic named Oda Mae Brown that stole the whole show. What this film did for The Righteous Brothers is much like what "E.T." did for Reese's Pieces! Who could forget that clay wheel scene?
10. At last! Now you know who did it! And even where Mr. Boddy's murder happened! And it wasn't Plum or Scarlet or Green or Peacock or White or Mustard. It didn't even happen in this mansion! And it WAS a ghost who perhaps possessed one of them, but who knows? But the one whose trigger finger pulled the plug on Boddy is an actress no longer with us. Scroll up and read the clues; it's all quite clear! Which actress?

Answer: Jessica Tandy

Your notepad is quite full. Tandy did it, the rascal! Qu. 1 mentions Paul Newman, her co-star in "Nobody's Fool" in 1994. Qu. 2 (as do a couple of others) deal a bit with birds and Alfred Hitchcock directed her in "The Birds" in 1963. Qu. 3, ending with a daisy reference, would certainly take note of her Oscar winning role in "Driving Miss Daisy". Qu. 4 mentioned Tennessee Williams, who wrote the play that put Tandy on the map in "A Streetcar Named Desire", a role later played notably on the screen by Vivien Leigh in the first film version (Qu. 5). Blanche DuBois in it was a part that everyone wanted, but Tandy wasn't considered "film-worthy" at the time. Qu. 6: Kathy Bates co-starred with Miss Tandy in "Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistle Stop Cafe" in 1991 (and tomatoes are really fruit-not vegetables). Qu. 7 had a blatant clue about feeling half your age when jumping into a pool with a "Cocoon" in it. Jessica was in that movie in 1985. Qu. 8 might be murky, but Esther Rolle's character died while shelling peas in "Driving Miss Daisy". And, of course, the "driver bit" was or is now shockingly clear in Qu. 9. Jessica Tandy was an icon of the American Theatre and went further with it in a grande dame way.

When she won her Oscar for "Daisy" she said she was on Cloud Nine. I hope she is. And I mean no disrespect to her memory making her a killer like this. Go back to Qu. 8...it's just a game. I hope you enjoyed your journey through this mystery!
