The Plot.

Lord Arthur Savile is a well-bred gentleman who is “not over-burdened with brains”.

His engagement to the lovely Sybil Merton looks like eternal happiness, but all this changes when his prospective mother-in-law, Lady Julia Merton, insists he has his palm read by Mr Podgers, a well-respected chiromantist, who predicts that Lord Arthur will commit a murder at some time.

Wishing to start married life with a “clean slate”, Lord Arthur feels duty bound to get the murder over and done with before the wedding.

His victim is to be chosen from one of his many relatives, but despite help from his butler, Baines and from a cheerful anarchist, Herr Winkelkopf, his attempts fail dismally.

Or do they?
