Though this one is flawed by the loss of the early scenes simulated with stills and captions, the ending develops into a characteristically clever and funny outing for the team.
Spec is off rehearsing the murder play, in a hotel with Hill & Richard. Dad Max suspects the worst and peers through the door to see a scene where a dummy is used as the body and packed away in a sack.
Max ends up racing round town followed by uniform patrolmen, including Kennedy doing his recognisable expressions. The final gags, when the dummy's leg becomes detached and appears to be part of the cloche hat woman ("I'm ruined"), are vintage.
Stevens' camera-work is accomplished without being remarkable.
