by James A. Clapp

“The Murder” is my first and, understandably, last dramatic role. It is a digital version of an 8mm film made sometime in 1963 by my then roomate, George J. Lappan, for his masters in Film and Television at Syracuse University.  It was filmed in our apartment in which there had been an actual murder that resulted in our modest rent.  The “victim” is played by my late wife, Patricia Ann Lynch, who was at the time my fiance and had the misfortune to be available because she was at the apartment being exploited as a typist for a term paper of mine.  Her acting ability was compromised by being acutely ticklish.
