A killer cast and a screenplay to die for await you in the mirthful mystery spoof, Murder By Death! Eccentric millionaire Lionel Twain (acclaimed author Truman Capote) has invited the world's greatest detectives to his mansion for the ultimate battle of wits. Informing his guests that a member of the dinner party will be murdered at midnight, he offers a million dollars to the sleuth who solves the crime. As the deadly game commences, Sidney Wang (Peter Sellers), Sam Diamond (Peter Falk), Dick and Dora Charleston (David Niven and Dame Maggie Smith), Milo Perrier (James Coco), and Jessica Marbles (Elsa Lanchester) must combine their powers of deduction to survive the night and preserve their reputations — or be exposed as completely clueless.
Murder By Death boasts sinister style and lethal laughs, as well as a hilarious script from the master of comedy, Neil Simon.

No, we only ship inside the US
Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.
We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.
All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.
Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.
Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.
If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.
We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
