Okay, NO.

 

 

If this is the opening frame, I'm not going to give this one a tremendous amount of attention. Sometime tells me that it's not the finest print. The sound might be scratchy, too. It's an Ellery Queen mystery concerning a valuable stamp. It's the bloody Moonstone rock all over again: an incredibly precious item comes to America, is delivered to a blonde heiress, and is stolen within ten minutes. Various characters stand around and talk and chat and haw-haw until the mystery is solved.

 

Let's look at something else. Can you identify this scene?

 

 

No, of course not. I photoshopped out the most important detail.

How about now?

 

 

Now it's clear, eh? Those letters and the tell-tale tilt tell you exactly where this is.

Oh: the butler did it.
