Newlyweds Webster and Jackie Frye (James Dunn and Florence Rice) arrive at an old country house for their honeymoon. They are horrified to discover a dead body. When the corpse disappears a bumbling team of policemen confine them there for the night along with the next-of-kin who’ve arrived to claim it. Unbeknownst to any of them a gang of jewel thieves are hot on the trail of a fortune in diamonds which is also hidden in the house. Writer Morey Amsterdam keeps the pace swift and the dialogue crackling in this screwball comedy with a splash of the macabre. An exceptional ensemble cast featuring Sam McDaniel as the nervous chauffeur and Robert Dudley as the town’s retired executioner who has a fixation with nooses makes this a PRC classic.
