Bonded by Murder (current day)
After 10 years of playing international super-spy Ian Strong on the silver screen, actor Roger Less is hoping to come back for one more Strong flick, but the Executive Producer of the film series has other ideas. Ian Strong movies are renowned for their exotic locales, big budgets and of course, those beautiful Strong Girls. Every actor and agent in Hollywood would kill to secure the next Ian Strong movie, and maybe, just maybe, one actually will.

Mild Thing (1957)
The golden age of professional football appears to be over. The rough and tumble players of the 30’s and 40’s have been replaced by the pampered athletes of the 1950’s, who expect to be paid well in excess of $2500 a year just to play a game! If only we had more gridiron heroes like Mustang “Wild Thing” McGillicutty. You’re about to meet “Wild Thing” as he gets set to enter the NFA Hall of Fame, but a lot of people are acting very strangely as they prepare for the induction. Will everyone live to see the ceremony?

There’s Something About Swen (current day)
Join us for an auction of some very rare and very old writings and artwork. Northeby’s Auction House will sell off a brilliant collection of historical pieces tonight. Auctioneer Alex Northeby is hoping the plans go off without a hitch, but an eccentric Swede may interfere with this high-society event. Magnus Swartling has been running around telling anyone who will listen that Christopher Columbus is a fraud. Magnus believes his ancestor, Swen Swartling, arrived in the New World in 1491, one year before the more famous explorer. Can the story possibly be true? How could such a claim be proven? And, why does Magnus want everyone to eat tree bark and drink seawater on Thanksgiving?
