Storyline

Two radio comics go to Desert Springs, one to get away from his jealous wife and the other to escape the attentions of a comedienne. The body of an agent is found in their room and later disappears. After some sleuthing by the actors and some other detectives, changed just enough from well-known fiction-and-movie detectives to keep from being sued, it is discovered that the agent was not killed, but his body had been concealed by his doctor, who had been experimenting with a new cure for heart trouble...none too well evidently.

Disappointing misfire is neither mysterious nor funny
26 May 2011 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Bert Gordon (the mad Russian) and harry Von Zell retreat from their radio show to the mountains in order to hide out from the crazy women in their lives. At the hotel the men find the women are there. Unable to get a bus home they spend the night only to find a murder has happened. The sheriff refuses to let anyone leave until the crime is solved. Gordon manages to get word to his actor friends-all having played detectives- and asks them to come up and solve the crime...

Slow rambling and way too long film thrashes about being neither mysterious nor funny. It just sort of lies there. Its a shame because the cast is to die for...

...then again its clear that any mind that made Gordon and Von Zell the stars of a film probably wouldn't know a good script if it bit them on the bum. Frankly I feel like the studio executive in the final scene before the genuinely funny black out gag...this film shouldn't have been released.

A major disappointment
