Well, someone's got to break the ice, and it might as well be me: in addition to those previouslies, there was also a very fun Fanfare discussion a while back.

Oh how perfect, I just watched Clue and Murder by Death yesterday. Thanks for this.

Miss Scarlett has always been my favourite. For some reason I often get the “I’m a capitalist!” line stuck in my head, her delivery is just perfect.

Come to think of it, that line was sampled in a song, no? Dang that’s going to bug me now.

Oh man, now the movie's script is playing in my head. "One plus two plus... SHUT UP! The point is, there is one bullet left in this gun and guess who's gonna get it!"

It just now occurs to me that some of the people who saw the original run in theaters didn’t get the “flames on the side of my face” moment. Tragic!

Leslie Ann Warren is a delight in this, but you can’t just call her the most “indelible” when Madeline Kahn is right there.

Are you aware that there’s a Clue reboot in development from Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds?
I am aware of it, and I’m sad about it.

Happy to read about Warren's enduring friendship with (the similarly underestimated) Martin Mull.

Thanks for posting this. One of my favorite movies.

(Hello I am watching Clue right now, it's just what I needed, thank you.)

A wonderful read. I keep meaning to make my husband watch the movie; it's not the sort of thing he would have seen in '85, while I actually saw all three endings in theaters!
