Episode on an Autumn Evening
Episode on an Autumn Evening
By Friedrich Durrenmatt.

Cast: 4m., 2w. A bookkeeper makes a crash entry on a novelist. He's noticed that the 21 murder mysteries the novelist is famed for just happen to coincide with 21 unsolved actual murders—and the novelist just happened to be in the vicinity at the time of each murder. The novelist ridicules any connection but admits it would be a quick way of supplying background and details. He points out that he has written not 21 but 22 mysteries. The bookkeeper disposes of that briskly—he did not count the 22nd murder as it was technically a suicide. A new note crept into the talk when the novelist warns that one does not press a murderer. One int. set. Approximate Running Time: 40 minutes.
