Young Lord Arthur (played by Sam McCalla) is deliriously happy – just down from Oxford and engaged to be married to the lovely Sybil Merton (Emily Grove) – when a mysterious palm reader (Pælor Cuihn) predicts that he will commit a murder. A proper English gentleman, Arthur believes it is his Duty to get this killing business over with before he marries. But his education has not provided him with the required skills, and a hilarious series of mishaps ensues involving, among others, his elderly aunt (Mildred Austin) and his cousin Jane (Lara Williams). His valet (Chuck E. Moore), his confidante (Carol M. Rice), and an anarchist named Herr Winckelkopf (Kelton Neals) also attempt to aid him in his desperate search for a victim. Will he succeed, or will his wedding be postponed forever? Based on the Oscar Wilde short story, “Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime.”
