I love this movie and try to watch it whenever it is on television.Van Dyke takes a break from playing Rob Petrie in order to play the comic foil to James Garner.The two of them then fight over Angie Dickinson,but then the beautiful Elke Sommar arrives and Garner's world goes upside down as he's tried for a murder that never happened.The recognizable faces of Carl Reiner,Ethel Merman and Roger C. Carmel pop up as the movie goes along.It's a shame this movie isn't on video because it really is a very fast,furious and funny film.
