Summary
Valentine, a mild-mannered film archivist at UCLA, knows that truth is often stranger than fiction. When he buys a decrepit old movie palace and uncovers a skeleton, he's not entirely surprised. What does surprise him however, is the discovery of reels of Erich von Stroheim's director's cut of the infamous movie, Greed. Since the LAPD will not allow him to remove the film until the case of the skeleton is solved, he and some friends decide to give the police a helping hand

Summary
Valentino, a mild-mannered UCLA film archivist, buys a decrepit movie palace and uncovers a skeleton in the secret Prohibition basement, as well as long-lost, priceless, reels of film: Erich von Stroheim's infamous Greed. The LAPD wants to take the reels as evidence, jeopardizing the precious old film. If Valentino wants to save his find, he has only one choice: solve the murder within 72 hours with the help of his mentor, the noted film scholar Broadhead, and Fanta, a feisty if slightly flaky young law student. Between a budding romance with a beautiful forensics investigator and visions of Von Stroheim's ghost, Valentino's madcap race to save the flick is as fast and frenetic as a classic screwball comedy
