Sleeping Dogs Lie DVD (1998)
In 1919, Ambrose small is a rich gambler and a theater impresario who spends his spare time dabbling in drugs and prostitution. At the height of his glory, he sells his successful theatre chain for over a million dollars, sends a body guard with his wife Theresa (Wendy Crewson) to the bank with the cheque, then vanishes without a trace. There were no witnesses, no notes, no clues. The explosive Protestant public thinks Mrs. Small is a murderous shrew when she decides to donate half of her inheritance to the catholic church. The Government steps in and puts the money in trust until she can prove her husband is dead. The questions remain: is the beautiful Theresa Small an abandoned wife, a grieving widow or perhaps a gifted manipulator capable of any crime?
