3 Acts of Murder - The Story of a Crime Writer - Upcoming movie about Arthur Upfield

Fans of Australian Crime Fiction and, in particular, Arthur Upfield have got a bit of a treat coming up on ABC1 on the 14th June. 3 Acts of Murder will be screening, telling one of those truth is often stranger than fiction stories about Arthur Upfield.

In 1928 Arthur Upfield, Australia’s premier crime writer, plotted the perfect murder for his novel The Sands of Windee. Meanwhile, one of his friends, stockman Snowy Rowles, put the scheme into deadly effect, even before the book was published. This true story resulted in one of Australia’s most sensational murder trials of the 1930’s and catapulted Upfield’s name onto the world stage.

The film has a terrific website associated with it at: http://www.3actsofmurder.com.au/ which includes background to the story, details of the characters, the cast and the crew and a trailer for the movie itself.

Interesting, but I'd really prefer a mystery series based on his novels. I would think that would be hugely appealing to audiences in the U.S.
