Wealthy Frederick Trumble makes an eccentric new will, secretes much of his wealth in a chair, then, within seconds, is murdered. The new heir, Fred Floogle, runs a flea circus. Of course, the reputed $12 million inheritance goes to his family's heads...then proves to consist of five chairs, which the disgusted Floogle sells just before discovering their secret. Packed with wisecracks, strange cameos, and nothing-sacred, anything-goes digressions. Written by

Terrifically funny - great for old time radio fans!
This movie is truly funny, especially if you appreciate Fred Allen's humor. It's also great to see old stars of radio, movies and television laugh at themselves with gently self-depreciating humor. I never knew the word "maraschino" could be so funny!
Do yourself a favor and seek out this movie -- you won't be dissappointed.
