Carol Lipton is a bored housewife who becomes convinced that her next door neighbour has commited a murder. When her sceptical husband Larry rejects the idea, Carol turns to a flirtatious friend to help her search for clues. And as their entusiasm for the case grows, so does their interest in each other. Spurred on by jealousy - and by a seductive writer who's also excited by the mystery - Larry reluctantly joins the chase, only to learn that much more than his marriage is at stake. A comic romp bursting with wry one-liners and inspired sight gags, 'Manhattan Murder Mystery' finds Woody Allen at his breezy, entertaining best.
