Lou Peckinpaugh, the Cheap detective has entered a world that is half Casablanca and half Maltese Falcon. A parody of Bogart's films in which Lou goes through a series of scenes from the two movies trying to keep ahead of the police who think he killed his partner and find the black bird. Written by

I beg to differ. In actuality, if Murder By Death hadn't been made first, I would have SWORN that it was a cheap knock-off of this movie. I found this to be a hilarious spoof of the detective movie genre - some of the humor did require you to think, however, and I imagine that is a where a good many people got lost along the way.
I DID think this was one of Ann-Margaret's better performances, but as far as her being the BEST part, I suppose that depends on which head you are using for thinking.
