    I recently saw a film based on the dounle sucide/ murder at Greystone Mansion which played out the various different scenarios that are rumoured to be what happened all using dialogue taken only from films (and possibly only the scenes) that had been filmed at the location. Unfortunately I can’t fore the life of me remember what it was called.
