Newly re-mastered in HD! Seduction and Murder Scandalizes German Nobility! The great Angela Lansbury (Murder, She Wrote) and Michael York (Cabaret) star in this slick blend of drama and black comedy with a fairy tale setting in a Bavarian castle. In post WWII Germany, the aristocratic Von Ornstein family has fallen on hard times. Countess Von Ornstein (Lansbury) can’t maintain her castle, but things begin to look up with the arrival of a handsome and young footman named Conrad (York) who apparently can do “anything” asked of him. Determined to become a member of nobility, Conrad one by one, cons, seduces, corrupts and compromises everyone who crosses his path. Set in the authentic 100-year-old castle, this polished mix of humor and suspense with a great twist ending truly offers Something For Everyone. Legendary Broadway producer, Harold Prince (West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof) made his feature film directorial debut with this handsome production written by Hugh Wheeler (Sweeney Todd) and based on the celebrated classic novel, The Cook by Harry Kressing.

Critical Acclaim

"Harold Prince’s uber-black comedy Something for Everyone is a sophisticate’s delight: a delicious, stylized cinematic morsel as appetizing as sweet pastry and as lethal as curare."
