Hollywood 1961. Famous movie star Leroy Dane's fan club secretary has been brutally murdered. In her possession are old newspaper clippings regarding a missing heiress. Tom Alder, who specializes in finding missing heirs, investigates. Did the secretary know something about the mystery of the heiress, who was last seen at sixteen at a malt shop near school? When Tom goes to check up on Leroy Dane at a restaurant, Tom sees his ex-fiancée Linda for the first time in many years. Linda's friend Nikki is also at the restaurant. With the help of Tom's friends - a colonel in Washington D.C. who has access to military records and a detective in New York who has people doing research and running down clues - Tom begins to unravel a complicated story that involves Linda, Nikki, Leroy Dane, and his own past. Twenty Plus Two is a 1961 whodunit film that came out of the Allied Artists studio, starring David Janssen, Dina Merrill and Jeanne Crain.
This poor excuse for a movie only has one line in the whole film that has any sparkle. It was when the woman says to David Janssen that he wouldn't make the first move. You can imply from this that he would fancy a woman, but not chat her up, especially if she is giving him any signals to offer friendship. Instead, he is quite prepared to spend $100 on a call girl just to talk to him. The one scene with Agnes Moorehead lifts the film in terms of performance, but it doesn't make it a good film. It comes nowhere near the quality of any Moorehead projects like 'Black Jack' or 'The Invaders' from season two of 'The Twilight Zone'. In short, stay away from this poorly made film because it's not a movie. I don't know what it is.
