Radioland Murders 1994 detective story

Radioland Murders (1994, United States)


In the golden era of radio, a new network, commanded by General Walt Whalen, is about to broadcast for the first time to the whole of the United States. The live program will reach both coasts of the country, and important guests are invited to take part in the premiere. But for Penny Henderson, assistant director of the show, it isn’t the moment of glory she hoped it would be - the whole live show quickly falls apart behind the curtains. The writers refuse to work because they were not paid in weeks, the biggest sponsor threatens to stop financing if his changes to the scripts are not introduced, the director of the show hates the guts of one of the stars and to make things worse Penny found out her husband, Roger, was cheating on her. But that is just the tip of the iceberg - when one of the musicians is found dead, no one was surprised, he was a heavy drinker, but when another body is found within the building, things get out of control and Roger Henderson quickly becomes the main suspect.

Unusual comedy mixed with classic whodunnit - set during the radio show, where investigation takes place while the program is broadcasted live and with a live studio audience. It is partly a tribute to the old radio shows and a tribute to classic murder mystery films. The production was criticized for using slapstick, which was accurate for the era that the story takes place in, but not necessarily appealing for the modern audience, but at the same time it is a perfect recreation of the atmosphere of old radio and how chaotic live broadcasts must have been. The nostalgia was not enough to find an audience after the premiere, but with a cast full of well-known actors, a unique style and atmosphere, it is a film that is worth seeing at least once.
