As a child, you spent most of your summers with your Aunt Hildegarde and
Uncle Buddy. What memories! Uncle Buddy was a Hollywood big-shot, Aunt
Hildegarde his loving (and very rich) wife. They had no children of their
own, but you and your cousins loved their house, their parties, the
Hollywood memorabilia, and them. Sure, Buddy and Hildy were a bit eccentric
-- but that added to their charm.
Aunt Hildegarde kept the house when Uncle Buddy passed away. And now that
she's suddenly died, you remember her unusual will. You will inherit the
entire estate -- probably worth millions of you can spend just one night in
the house and on the grounds, find a treasure or two. But if you can't then
you inherit nothing.
And so Hollywood Hijinx begins with you being dropped off in front of a dark
house, not to far from Hollywood ...
