Trivia

Harlan and Donald Edgerton are based on Homer and Langley Collyer, two reclusive brothers who lived in a New York City brownstone and who tragically died there in March 1947. Homer was blind and paralyzed and depended upon his brother to bring him food. Langley was killed when a tunnel of stacked newspapers collapsed on him. Parallels between the real life Collyer and fictional Edgerton brothers include false rumors of great wealth hidden in the home and a vast hoard of accumulated items that included dressmaker's dummies, stacked newspapers and a Model T car. The Collyer Brothers, like the Edgerton Brothers, were what are now termed compulsive hoarders. See more »

***SPOILERS*** Loosely based on the crazy Collyer brothers of the 1940's who's hording everything that they can get their hands on resulted in both dying in traps that they set in their 5th Ave and E 128 street Manhattan mansion that was filled with as much as 120 tons of junk newspapers and garbage that the two weirdos accumulated over the last 10 to 15 years. In this case Det. Let. Mike Stone, Karl Malden, and his partner Inspt. Steven Keller, Michael Douglas, are summoned to Hyde Street in San Francisco where it's reported that 12 year old Mark Dunham, Michael Morgan, was last reported to be and ended up dead with a broken neck. It's the owner of the house Harlan Edgeton , Leu Ayres, who's the #1 suspect in Mark's death who's shut in brother Don was also suspected but cleared of the death of a 10 year old girl in the very same house 30 years ago.

It soon turns out that despite being a bit, yeah sure, nutty Harlan is as harmless as a kitten, or his pet cat Tommy, and couldn't hurt a fly much less kill a human being. That's not what Mark's best friend Billy's, Clint Howard, dad Joe Randolph, Albert Salmie, thinks and organizes a lynch mom to burn Harlan's house down with all the junk he has stored, a major fore hazard, in it. Rudolph also has it in for Harlan's whacked out brother who cracked up after he survived the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor who's been hiding in the house ever since and was later suspected to have murdered a 10 year old girl which he was cleared of.

****SPOILERS*** With Joe Rudolph & Co. about to burn the place down it's discovered, by him confessing, that it was his son Billy who by having Mark brake into the house who was really responsible for Mark getting himself killed! AS for the elusive Don Edgeton It's discovered that he's been living locked up on the roof in the house's chicken coop all these years living on bird seed and molded bread never once bothering to venture out in public. All this exonerated both Harlan & Don in Mark's death but gets the ready to take the law into their hands Rudolph and his friends into hot water for jumping the gun. That's before the evidence proved that the Eageton brothers were in fact innocent of any of all the charges placed against them!
