LAST OF SHEILA, THE in 35mm
Called "a devilishly complicated thriller of superior class" by Roger Ebert, scripted by Stephen Sondheim and Anthony Perkins (PSYCHO) and directed by Herbert Ross (FOOTLOOSE, THE GOODBYE GIRL, STEEL MAGNOLIAS), THE LAST OF SHEILA takes the unsolved murder of fictitious Hollywood gossip columnist Sheila Greene as the jumping-off point for an exquisite ensemble whodunit set aboard a luxury yacht. A year after Sheila's untimely death, her wealthy husband (James Coburn) invites six acquaintances who were present on the fateful day in question to gather on his yacht. His aim? To uncover the truth about his wife's demise and unmask her murderer. In the mix are a struggling screenwriter (Richard Benjamin) and his rich wife (Joan Hackett), a down-on-his-luck former A-list director (James Mason), a fading starlet (Raquel Welch), her gigolo boyfriend (Ian McShane) and a desperate talent agent (Dyan Cannon). As secrets are revealed and motives unearthed, this unconventional voyage of discovery quickly turns deadly. DIR/PROD Herbert Ross; SCR Stephen Sondheim, Anthony Perkins. U.S., 1973, color, 120 min. RATED PG
