A fast paced little movie
16 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When a valuable necklace is stolen the insurance agent who mistakenly issued the policy suspects the suave and handsome man that her boss has hired to get it back and who the inept police officer (William Demarest) on the case also suspects. They follow him and his valet (Edward Brophy)as they in turn are following a nightclub singer and her boyfriend. The group finds themselves on a train and then at a shack out in the middle of nowhere with guns pointed at them by country folks who distrust "city people in circus clothes".

It all ends happily of course and in just under an hour. The actors are very good and some very funny situations.
