A Taste of Hemlock (1989) -- In this odd mystery, based on the play The Astrakhan Coat by Pauline Macaulay, a group of English eccentrics conspires and connives to get a clueless young man to purchase a particularly fine leather jacket which was previously owned by one of them. Claud Thatch (Randy Harrington) sees an advertisement at the neighborhood laundromat offering the aforesaid jacket for very little money. He answers the ad, meets quite a few people in connection with it, and purchases the coat even though its cost is somewhat beyond his means. A series of misadventures follows which gradually reveal why the conspirators were so oddly eager to have Claud buy the coat.
