Shot at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, Greystone explores how an LA oil heir and his assistant might actually have died by restaging the historic killings using nothing but dialog from 32 feature films also shot at the estate.
In 1929 Edward Doheney Jr and his personal assistant were found shot to death in the former's opulent residence, Greystone Mansion. The official finding was murder-suicide: the assistant killed Doheny and then shot himself, but the facts just didn't add up. Some dubbed it a lover's quarrel; others blamed Doheny's wife. Many suspected foul play as the two men had recently been called to testify against Doheny's father in a bribery scandal. Greystone stages a series of interpretations of what might actually have occurred, using only dialog appropriated from Hollywood films also shot in the storied estate.Written by
