This musical comedy is a parody of 1950's "whodunnit" theatre mysteries. Detective Lieutenant Frank Cioffi investigates a series of murders that take place on the set of the 1950's cowboy musical, Robbin' Hood. The cast and crew are all suspects and are forced to stay inside the theatre while Cioffe unravels the mystery. He finds the killer, helps to fix the ailing musical and falls in love with ingenue Niki Harris in the process. Special thanks to: Theatrical Rights Worldwide.  Read More about Curtains on Wikipedia
