Synopsis for "The Very Last Picture Show"

A Hollywood director who murdered a script writer 35 years ago overhears his wife and her lawyer plotting to replace his new premiere with a film that the lawyer had produced re-enacting the murder in order to convince him that his victim has returned from grave seeking revenge. When he enters the projection booth to confront them, the film strangles him. It turns out the lawyer did not have the time to substitute the film after all, and both he and the wife were in the audience.
