Ellery Queen goes funny!
7 February 2014 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

While in his first appearances as 'Ellery Queen', Ralph Bellamy had been very serious (almost too serious, compared to Donald Cook and Eddie Quillan, who had played the character before him), in his last film for the series he (and all the cast with him) shows his comical side for once. And surprisingly enough, this makes a fine mix with a - literally - deadly serious murder case, providing lots of corpses, greedy relatives, shady doctors, and at the same time dumb cops, even dumber crooks, and of course more funny quarrels with his assistant Nikki than ever before.

The plot, in fact, IS a classic 'whodunit', with many twists and surprises, and a challenge for every mystery fan - at least for those who've got a good sense of humor, too... So, if you don't take murder too seriously, this movie will provide you real good entertainment, varying from quite suspenseful and even creepy sections to moments of pure comedy!
