Clue: The Movie was released 25 years ago today

Clue the Movie Starts Today

Clue the movie was released 25 years ago today; December 13th, 1985.

Clue was the first movie directly based on a board game.  It was filmed with three different endings (Ending A, Ending B and Ending C).  However, there was a fourth ending scripted and shot but dropped at the last minute.  You can still read the fourth ending in the movie novelization and the Clue Storybook.  The Clue Storybook even has a few photos of the missing ending.

The structure and story of Clue was taken from two different movies; Murder by Death and Ten Little Indians. Murder by Death was a 1976 murder-mystery spoof by playwright Neil Simon starring Peter Falk, Alec Guiness, James Coco, Truman Capote and Eileen Brennan (Mrs Peacock). Five of the world’s greatest detectives are invited up to a mansion and asked to solve a murder that will take place at midnight. Ten Little Indians was a 1974 murder-mystery based on Agatha Christie’s famous novel. Many of the kills in Clue the Movie are homages to Ten Little Indians.

Clue is one of my wife and my favorite movies. We quote it endlessly. As a matter of fact, to celebrate the 25th anniversary, we watched it this weekend. And loved every minute of it.
