Overview of a mystery about famous celebrities from the 1960s
It’s 1961. The world’s richest man – Jerry Oilman – has invited anybody who is anybody to his birthday party – the biggest party of all time. Jerry Oilman is an extremely wealthy man. He also has the misfortune of being a very short man.
Why not be like Jerry and have a celebrity birthday?
He made his money in oil. He is eccentric and notorious for his collection of stuffed bats. These hideous black winged creatures hang from the walls and ceiling of his house spooking everyone who enters. Some people consider Jerry Oilman quite batty. Others are less polite.
Tonight Jerry has invited a host of rich and famous people. When you get this many big names together you know there’s sure to be conflict. What Jerry hadn’t foreseen, and what you don’t know, is that something sinister and frightening is about to take place. You will all be asked to work out who is the villain behind this dastardly crime – a crime that will take us all the way to the graveside.
Excerpt from this celebrity mystery party
Janis Joplin: “The famous all mix with the famous and the poor with the poor. Birds of a feather and “all my friends drive Porsches” kind of stuff. That’s why we’re here. But we didn’t come here expecting someone to be killed.”
What They've Said
“Everyone had a GREAT time! We had 26 people and they ALL took their character very seriously. We had a policeman come to our door because some of the cars were parked on the wrong side of the road. “Rita Hayworth” proceeded to tell him that none of us could leave because there had been a murder and we were all ordered to stay for questioning. I think he was a bit concerned to hear that, LOL!“

“We did our Celebrity Celebrations party on the patio! The day started out warm but rainy, but by the time night rolled around it was fairly crisp! We are so looking forward to choosing another mystery and all the preparations that will go with it. Our party was held October 25, 2008 and it took me this long to download the photos!
I purchased the Celebrity Celebrations Mystery for my Halloween party back in October and we had a great time playing the parts and guessing the villain.
“Hi, I have attached some photos from my daughter’s Celebrity Celebrations party. I purchased this party for her 11th birthday. She kept telling me that she really wanted to be Marilyn Monroe for her party, so this party kit was perfect. We didn’t get as many kids as we would have liked but the ones that did attend, had a blast. Let me know what you think.

The suspects in this mystery game
The most famous ladies present at the party are:
I am a dazzling singer, dancer and actor. I won an Academy Award for “Kitty Foyle”. When I retired from Hollywood fame, I bought a dairy farm. I am very attached to my dairy cows.
I am an actress, singer and dancer. My most famous role was as Gilda. Some people have branded me as the screen’s sultry love goddess. I married a prince. My face was painted on the atomic bomb, which was dropped on Hiroshima – I’m not sure if this was a compliment or not.
I am the first goddess of rock. I have a raw iron soul and sing like a blues mamma. I keep begging God to buy me a Mercedes Benz, but so far he hasn’t.
I am a sex goddess, singer, actor and model. I spent part of my childhood unloved in an orphanage but now I’m loved by all the men in the world. I am a member of the “Rat Pack”.
I am the lady who has made thousands of people laugh with my films and TV shows for over 50 years. I dye my hair red and I am not really a redhead.
I have sung and danced in thirty-two feature films and I am one of the world’s greatest entertainers. I am a member of the “Rat Pack”.
I am a husky voiced actress famous for my roles in over 80 films including “All About Eve”, “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?” and “The Man Who Came To Dinner”. I often played “bitchy” type roles and people say I am “a force of nature that could find no ordinary outlet”.
I am a country music sensation with a voice people say is never to be forgotten. I started “entertaining” my neighbors when I was only three.
