Bull in a China Shop

By C. B. Gilford

Directed by Shawn Britten

The inhabitants of Miss Hildegarde’s boarding house, slightly daft spinster ladies, are smitten with their handsome bachelor neighbor, a homicide detective. When the thrill of peering at him through binoculars wears off, they decide to lure him across the street by murdering one of their own.
