Storyline

Two people have been murdered in Clayton by a mysterious killer using a blow-gun. Socialite club-leader Phoebe Witherspoon comments that "the town needs another Ma Pilkington, the best police chief the town ever had", and the town's newspaper editor, Henry Wright sends reporter Breezy to find the late Ma Pilkington's daughter, Jane "Pilky" Pilkington. She is given the job of tracking down the killer and policeman Mulligan is assigned to assist her. But after two more unsolved murders, Wright buys "Pilky" a ticket back to Horsetrot, the town in which they found her, and summons a Chicago detective to take over the case. "Pilky" is depressed by this turn of events and more so when she learns that Breezy is engaged to Maybelle, an actress. Mulligan is also fired. The killer strikes again by killing stage producer Tommy-Gun Tucker and the Chicago detective decides to go back to the safe confines of the Windy City, leaving "Pilky" again in charge. She sees Maybelle take a note out of ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The blow pipe murderer strikes again at a nightclub and the town seek the help of Joan Davis (Pilky) to solve things. She gets a sidekick to help her in comedy policeman Leon Errol (Mulligan) who sums up the film near the end when he says "This is getting monotonous". Yep.

My favourite characters are the couple who keep turning up to the nightclub to watch the next real-life murder take place – it's their idea of a good night out. But, overall, the film tries hard with annoying characters, obvious humour and slapstick that gets tiresome pretty quickly. So, the film becomes boring and seems way longer than its short running time. There are a few good ideas towards the end – the scary balloon in the mirror and the trapdoor that keeps propping up a body – and Joan Davis is good enough to lead things. It's just not very funny for a comedy. And as for comedy policemen – why? If you enjoy tedious films, then this is one for you.
