The Insiders: We’ve detected that you should check out this movie

There was a time we considered becoming private detectives, but that plan was ultimately derailed by the fact that our faces are in the newspaper five mornings a week and we don’t really have any detective skills. Aside from those two drawbacks, though, we would have been perfect for the job.

One thing we do know, though – there have been at least 62 private detectives in history. How do we know? Because Red River Theatres is showing Private Detective 62 tonight.

The movie, a 1933 vehicle (1933 vehicles are antiques!) starring William Powell and Margaret Lindsay, is part of the I Love a Mystery Series and will show at 4 p.m. The IMDb plot synopsis notes that a “discredited diplomat accidentally finds work with a seedy private detective.” Seriously, that’s one “discredited” and one “seedy” in a matter of 10 words . . . it’s got to be a hit!

One thing the movie likely doesn’t have? Traditional English dances. Thankfully, you can get that elsewhere today when Presidential Oaks hosts an English Country Dance at 5:30 p.m. The evening will feature traditional dances from England and contemporary dances in the “Playford” style. There will be a walk-through to teach the dances, which will be called by a dance leader. Admission is $8.
