In the Black Museum, Orson Wells points out two bullets, and how they were connected to the same weapon in committing murder, although the crimes were years apart.
Though it’s Springtime in 1944 during the war, we look at a peaceful country farm. A gunshot would be out of place, and noticed here. At the same time bombs are falling on London, and despite the constant explosions, people try to get on with life as normally as possible. From that scene we learn where the pistol came from that would provide the killing bullets of our story.
During an air raid, a pair of soldiers managed to shoot the air raid warden. The shrapnel wound wouldn’t have been fatal, but their bullet did the trick, and even air raid victims are examined for cause of death. The two soldiers panic, but manage to lay low until 1947.
The same soldiers are civilians, and are now planning a robbery of a truckload of furs. Orson provides voiceover to help move the drama along, and fill in details as the robbers make their move. They don’t count on a silent alarm that calls cops down on them. Gunplay action leads to the killing of a cop, and the bullet is matched to the long ago murder. Orson adds a few details of the connection between the crimes, and ties the knot on how justice was carried out.
