PG | | Comedy, Crime, Mystery
Six guests are anonymously invited to a strange mansion for dinner, but after their host is killed, they must cooperate with the staff to identify the murderer as the bodies pile up.
The color of each character's car is the same color as their playing piece in the game, and is introduced as follows: Colonel Mustard drives a yellow 1954 Cadillac Series 62, Mrs. White drives a black-and-white 1950 MG TD convertible, Mrs. Peacock drives a blue 1952 Packard 200 Deluxe club sedan, Mr. Green drives a green 1951 Plymouth Cranbrook, Ms. Scarlet drives a 1946 red Lincoln Continental, and Professor Plum drives a purple 1949 Pontiac Streamliner Station Wagon.
Is everything ready?
Yvette: Oui, Monsieur.
Wadsworth: You have your, um, instructions.
The candlesticks change location on the table throughout the dinner scene in the dining room. The candlesticks are usually in the middle of the table, but in close up shots, the candlesticks are moved away from the characters to the left or right side, most likely to see the actors' faces when they talk.
The end credits begin with "Clue" game cards that are flipped over to reveal pictures of the main characters and the names of the actors that played them.
In some television broadcasts of the movie, the "drawing lots" scene in the kitchen is cut out. The scene goes from the decision to split up and cuts directly to where the pairs go to search the house.
