Parisian lothario Bernard, who has three beautiful fianceés, one Italian, one German, and one American - all three airline hostesses who make frequent "layovers" at his pad. His life mission is to keep one up, one down, and one pending. This balancing act is working wonderfully until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris and Bernard's apartment at the same time.

This musical Western is adapted from the celebrated stage-play and film. ‘Calam’ dresses like a man, totes a gun and drives the Deadwood City stagecoach. Well-meaning, but disaster-prone, she tries to help the local saloon proprietor out of a jam by promising to fetch a music-hall star from Chicago. A hilarious comedy, it nevertheless has many tender moments and some very famous numbers, including Secret Love, Black Hills of Dakota, Deadwood Stage and Windy City.
Agatha Christie's A Murder is Announced

An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock's Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house's several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution at some risk to herself in a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain.
