Storyline

Harvey Hunnicutt is the stereotypical used car salesman: a fast talker who, to put it politely, is prone to stretching the truth about the cars he sells. He buys a used car from an old gentleman paying him far less that it's worth. After the deal, the old man tells him the car is haunted. Soon, Harvey finds that he can only tell the truth. Not only to customers but even to his wife as well. When he tries to sell the man's car he finds the perfect customer. Written by garykmcd

As a matter of fact, in just a...

Nothing But The Truth
26 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Jack Carson plays unethical but friendly used car salesman Harvey Hunicut, who one day thinks he has outsmarted yet another customer by shortchanging him for the worth of their car, but is in for a nasty surprise when this particular car proves to be haunted, forcing its owner to always tell the truth, which for a man like Hunicut and the business he's in, proves most inconvenient indeed... Arte Johnson plays his long-suffering assistant Irv. Another of the videotaped episodes doesn't come off too badly here, though story details remain quite vague of course, episode is still amusing, and final joke of who owns the car now is a gem.
