The Butler Did It parodies every English mystery play ever written, but it has a decidedly
American flair. Miss Maple, a dowager with a reputation for “clever” weekend parties, invites a
group of detective writers to eerie Ravenswood Manor on Turkey Island where they are to
impersonate their fictional characters. The hostess has arranged all sorts of amusing incidents:
a mysterious voice on the radio, a menacing face at the window, a mad killer on the loose. Who
is that body in the wine cellar anyway? Why do figurines keep toppling from the mantel? Then,
a real murder takes place and Miss Maple is outraged. She offers an immense reward to the
“detective” who can bring the killer to justice. And what an assortment of zany would-be
sleuths! When they’re not busy tripping over clues, they trip over each other! Laughs collide
with thrills, and the climax is a real seat-grabber as the true killer is unmasked and almost
everyone turns out to be someone else!
