Jonsa Gift Exchange round 5: Inspired by Film. In this case, ‘Murder By Death’, released 1976 and starring Truman Capote, Peter Sellars, Peter Falk, Maggie Smith, David Niven, and Alec Guinness. It’s a spoof of many different mystery and detective tropes.
I’m calling it now: I picked the most obscure, most WTF choice of film of anyone in this Exchange! I apologize to my Giftee, allisonswan because I’m fairly sure this is NOT what she had in mind. My brief requested ‘Romantic Comedy’, and I looked and looked, and nothing I found resonated with me. Then I tried straight comedy, thinking I could just write some romance in. And for some reason I picked this one?! I’ve put in some shout-outs, in the spirit of the original movie – hope it works.
