Storyline

This series was Sam Spade played for broad comedy. Ace Crawford was an incompetent gumshoe whose reputation as an ace detective was maintained by a progression of wild accidents and dumb luck. He was assisted by Toomey, a CPA who truly believed his mystique. Ace's favorite hangout was a wharfside bar run by Inch, mainly because his romantic foil, Luana, was a singer there.
