“Design for Murder,” by George Batson, was originally written as a touring vehicle for the great Talullah Bankhead back in the early 1930s depression era America. As fallout from the Great Depression spreads, Celia Granger’s estate on the Hudson river totters on the brink of collapse. The only thing that can save her is a social advantageous marriage for her unstable son, David. But, when that impending union is threatened by a blackmailing maid and chauffer, and each in turn is found brutally murdered, Celia finds herself the primary suspect in an investigation by the watchful village constable.
