Description by OLDIES.com:
Tonight on the program at the Hollywood Bowl: murder! A bravura production of Verdi's Il Trovatore is the setting for this con brio blend of music, mystery and murder most foul. Leo Carrillo portrays Gino D'Acosta, a brilliant tenor who has millions of die-hard fans and at least one die-now enemy. Warned of impending doom by a mystic, Gino laughs it off ? until he performs an aria, then perishes - the victim of poisoning - in front of 20,000 wildly applauding witnesses. Whodunit? An L.A. cop (Chester Morris) has a long cast of suspects: the mystic, a deranged composer, an ambitious understudy, the cuckolded opera conductor, Gino's cast-off mistress, Gino's latest sweetheart and the sweetheart's former beau. The plot thickens when one of the suspects is the next to die. Can you spot the killer before he -- or she -- strikes again?
