Body Double

  • Stella Smart discovered her late husband in a romantic tryst with the younger actress, Ellen Granger, and killed him in anger. However, with Virgil dead, there was a threat that the theatre might be lost. To prevent this, Smart's fellow cast mates Granger, David Martin and Arthur Wellesley assisted her in hiding the crime.
  • Smart later marries Arthur Wellesley but kept her first husband's surname. She continues to own and operate the Grand Theatre.
  • At the time of Virgil's murder, the cast was involved in a production of Macbeth in which Smart played Lady Macbeth. When Smart and Inspector Brackenreid meet she is playing the same character again and enjoys the praises and admiration of the Inspector.
