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.

WOMAN:

(looking at paper)

Let's see . . . Hill House. Off Route 41.

MAN:

Wait a minute. Let me look at that.

(takes paper)

That's where I'm going. I got a letter like this.

They both look disturbed.

14 -- EXT. CAR -- 14

The rain has started.

The windshield wipers start as the car pulls away.

15 -- INT. GROUND FLOOR--LIBRARY -- 15

We see a middle aged woman.

WADSWORTH (O.S.)

And this is Mrs. Peacock.

MUSTARD:

How do you do?

WHITE:

Hello.

WADSWORTH:

Yvette, will you go and check that dinner will be ready as soon

as all the guests have arrived?

Yvette nods.

Mrs. Peacock stares disapprovingly at Yvette's exposed cleavage.

Yvette exits the library.

The doorbell rings.

16 -- EXT. HILL HOUSE--FRONT DOOR -- 16

It is now raining quite hard.

A man is standing at the door, much like Col. Mustard was.

The dogs, of course, are growling.

Wadsworth opens the door.

MAN:

Is this the right address to meet Mr. Boddy?

WADSWORTH:

Oh, you must be Mr. Green.

GREEN:

Yes . . .

WADSWORTH:

(to dogs)

Sit!

Green frantically sits on a bench by the door.

WADSWORTH:

No. Not you, sir.

Mr. Green sheepishly gets up and enters the house.

17 -- INT. MAN'S CAR -- 17

WOMAN:

It should be just off there.

17a -- EXT. HILL HOUSE--VIEW FROM FRONT GATE -- 17a

17b -- INT. MAN'S CAR -- 17b

MAN:

That must be it.

17c -- EXT. HILL HOUSE--VIEW FROM FRONT GATE -- 17c

Lightning crashes, illuminating the house.

17d -- INT. MAN'S CAR -- 17d

WOMAN:

Why is the car stopped?

MAN:

It's frightened.

17e -- EXT. HILL HOUSE--FRONT GATE -- 17e

The car is started again and it rolls up the driveway.

18 -- INT. GROUND FLOOR--LIBRARY -- 18

Lightning crashes, making Mr. Green gulp.

19 -- EXT. HILL HOUSE--FRONT--DRIVEWAY -- 19

The man and woman exit their car and run for the front door.

The man shields the woman from the now heavy rain.
