Elliot Freed likes to refer to his theatre as ďThe Stateís Only All-Comedy Movie TheatreĒ. And it truly is one of a kind as is Elliot. You can even extend that statement to include Elliotís employees. Things are never really dull in Elliotís world. The current problem is he has agreed to show Killiní Time which is anything but a comedy. Anthony Pagliarulo, the theatreís projectionist/ticket taker, has produced this film and is very proud of that fact. But the film disappears. The police are called in but Anthony is convinced that Elliot took the film for some unknown reason. So we have the first mystery to solve.

Next, Elliot meets one of his comedy idols Harry Lillis of the comedy group Lillis & Towes. Elliot finds Harry living in an actorís assisted living room and convinces him to make an appearance at the Comedy Theatre. Harry shows up and puts on a great performance. He also hints to Elliott that Towes murdered his wife in Hollywood years ago. Elliot, being Elliot, canít just ignore this little tidbit so he begins his own investigation. Things go downhill from there.

Between his crime solving and trying to reconcile with his ex-wife Elliot is a very busy man.

It Happened One Knife is full of humor, mystery and wonderful characters plus a lot of movie history. Highly recommended for a lot of excitement and many laughs. I enjoyed Some Like It Hot Buttered but this book is even better. I love all Elliotís employees and friends. A very interesting group.
