Murder in 3 Acts

A while back there was a TV movie, “Murder in 3 Acts” shown on ABC in Oz.  It concerned the murders committed by Snowy Rowles around 1930.  The disposal of the bodies was accomplished by the method discussed by Arthur Upfield & mates over coffee.  Upfield has just sold his first BONY novel and was looking for a plot device for his 2nd.  The main thing was to dispose of the body completely and, hence, pose a nasty problem for BONY.

Rowles was there with them.  However, he was careless and was caught & hanged.  Upfield’s book came out & was serialixed during the trial.

If you can obtain the film, it is a good view.

    I have an autograph and message by Arthur Upfield and which was given to my father in outback NSW by Arthur Upfield himself. Is anyone interested?

    G’day judith,

    You did not say if there is a price attached.

    As a fan of Upfield fo rover 20 years, who also produced a fanzine on him, I would love to have it.

    Thank you for contacting me.
