Episode: The Adventure of Auld Lang Syne

At a prestigious New Year’s Eve party ushering in 1947 at the Astor Hotel in Times Square, a wealthy businessman Marcus Halliday is found murdered in a telephone booth.  Inspector Queen is already at the party and insists that his son Ellery come at once to help with the investigation.
Turns out the angry Mr. Halliday had just informed his six party guests that he was disinheriting them all from his will.  While waiting for his son to arrive, Inspector Queen questions Halliday’s guests: Lady Frawley who accompanies Lewis Halliday, Marcus’ ungrateful son.  There is also Miss Zelman the secretary and her sheepish boyfriend Howard Pratt, Paul Quincy the lazy nephew, and Don Becker--Halliday’s new business partner he thinks is corrupt.
