Nonsensical movie with Jean Parker very funny as a daffy dame intent on solving murders, in this case the one of her employer at a hotel.
Nothing in this movie is especially surprising. The cops are gruff and annoyed, the suspects are blandly generic and the boyfriend, who is continually forced to help out in the investigation, is genially frustrated. Bodies appear and disappear, everyone acts suspicious, hotel employees have jealousy issues, Parker keeps doing dumb things that somehow pan out and there's a lot of running around the hotel. In other words, this is a better than usual example of the comedy mystery movie, mainly due to some solid performances.
I have no idea whether the mystery makes sense. I watched this on streaming netflix but then got distracted and forgot I was watching it. I wound up seeing the first and second half of the movie several months apart, and the review is more aimed at the second half since I don't even remember the first half in any detail. So let's say it's fun but very unmemorable.
