Seven Keys to Baldpate
by George M. Cohen
Sep 24 - Sep 27, 2016

Novelist Billy McGee makes a bet with a wealthy friend that he can write a 10,000 word story within 24 hours. He retires to a summer mountain resort in the dead of winter and locks himself in, believing he has the sole key. However he is visited during the night by a rapid succession of other people, including a corrupt politician, a crooked cop, a hermit, a feisty girl reporter and a gang of criminals, etc., none of whom have any trouble getting into the remote inn: there appear to be seven keys to Baldpate.

McGee gets no work done, instead being drawn into the hijinks and eventually foiling a plot by the crooks to get a huge amount of money from the hotel safe that is earmarked for a city street railroad deal and falling in love with the reporter. He observes derisively that all of these complicated incidents and characters are ones that he has written over and over again. Just before midnight, he finds out that everyone is an actor hired to perpetuate a hoax, orchestrated by McGee's friend to keep him from completing the story.
