Larry Karaszewski on

The Last of Sheila

Released 1973
Distributor Warner Bros.

Stephen Sondheim and Anthony Perkins deservedly won the mystery writers’ Edgar Award for their witty screenplay to this clever 1973 puzzler based on a series of actual real-life scavenger hunts they organized for their friends. An all-star cast plays an amusing assortment of sybaritic showbiz types whose dark sides get darker as the whodunit progresses.
