Storyline

A diamond is stolen at a houseboat party given by the district attorney. He gives the thief a chance to return it by putting an empty box on a table and turning out the lights. When the lights are turned back on the box is gone, and the district attorney has a knife in his back and is quite dead. The police and the coroner arrive. There are several attempts made on the life of the coroner. Ruth Whitman is found hiding in a grandfather-clock, holding the gem box. She claims the box was pushed into her hands and she was pushed into the clock. The district attorney's butler/valet tells the coroner he saw who killed his employer and a few minutes later he is also murdered. The mystery deepens.

Fast and funny
19 May 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A fast and funny picture from Raymond Griffith, the top-hatted comic whiz of the mid-twenties, one of the few silent stars whose careers actually was wrecked by a bad voice -- he could only speak in a whisper -- and whose pictures have largely vanished due to the malign neglect of his studio. This time he's the coroner called in to crack a murder -- but he was on his way to the theater and can only spare an hour. Watch for Roscoe Karns and Richard Arlen in small roles. Title cards by Robert Benchley!
