Take an aging, exceedingly vain actor; his very rich wife; a double dealing, double loving agent plunk them down in an elegant New York duplex and add dialogue crackling with wit and laughs and you have the basic elements for an evening of pure, sophisticated entertainment. Angela, the wife and Ted, the agent, are lovers and plan to murder Palmer, the actor, during a contrived robbery on New Year's Eve. But actor and agent are also lovers and have an identical plan to do in the wife. A murder occurs, but not one that was planned!
