Synopsis
Arrogant James Casanova Valentino Bond is in the middle of judging a cooking contest when he (after a dramatic and quite theatrical death scene) falls over with a thud. It seems he's been unmercifully poisoned. Each contestant is suddenly a suspect with a motive for wanting this man dead. When Detective Biddle shows up out of nowhere, he begins his investigation immediately. As he questions the suspects, their stories come to life on stage thanks to a reenactment team that has been provided for entertainment value.
 
Once all the stories are told and the detective is ready to place his arrest, an unexpected suspect is brought to light and questioned as well. A guilty party is taken away, another murder occurs, which causes another detective to show up out of nowhere. Then he falls dead. A zany comedy chock full of puns, sight gags and ridiculous situations that one could only hope for in a parody murder mystery.
