Clue (1985)
Synopsis: Based on the popular board game, this comedy begins at a dinner party hosted by Mr. Boddy (Lee Ving), where he admits to blackmailing his visitors. These guests, who have been given aliases, are Mrs. Peacock (Eileen Brennan), Miss Scarlet (Lesley Ann Warren), Mr. Green (Michael McKean), professor Plum (Christopher Lloyd), Mrs. White (Madeline Kahn) and Col. Mustard (Martin Mull). When Boddy turns up murdered, all are suspects, and together they try to figure out who is the killer.

Wadsworth exits, closing the doors behind him. The doors have books

on the back of them, and so look like a part of the wall.

MUSTARD:

Oh, Wadsworth, I was--

Mustard turns to discover the doors have disappeared.

The bell rings.

A woman dressed in black stands here.

Wadsworth opens the door.

WADSWORTH:

Do come in, madam. You are expected.

WOMAN:

Do you know who I am?

WADSWORTH:

Only that you are to be known as Mrs. White.

WHITE:

Yes, it said so in the letter. But, why . . . ?

Wadsworth removes her coat, with a brilliantly white inside.

Mrs. White sniffs and checks her shoe.

11 -- INT. GROUND FLOOR--LIBRARY -- 11

Yvette and Col. Mustard are here.

Mustard is sipping Cognac and glancing at Yvette.

The doors open, the left one into Col. Mustard.

WADSWORTH:

Ah. May I introduce you? Mrs. White, this is Yvette, the maid.

(The two women react with disgust)

I see you know each other.

Mrs. White turns away as Col. Mustard emerges from behind the door.

WHITE:

Hello.

MUSTARD:

Hello.

A slim woman is standing by her broken down car.

An owl can be heard.

She hits the car, obviously frustrated.

Thunder roars in the distance.

The woman sees headlights a short way away. She smoothes her dress.

As the car nears, she bends over the engine and lifts a leg.

the car screeches to a halt just past her and backs up.

The woman goes to the car and peers in.

MAN'S VOICE

Want a lift?

WOMAN:

(sultry)

Yes, please . . .

She gets in.

WOMAN:

Thanks. I'm late for a dinner date.

Me too. Where are you going?

The woman pulls out a sheet of paper.
