Frank Patton is the promoter of the Lucky Legs Contest. The problem is that he always skips town before paying the $1000 to the winner. Mr. Bradbury, suitor of Cloverdale winner Margie, hires intoxicated Perry Mason to find Frank. Perry knows the scheme that Patton is using and has Spudsy find him, but Frank is dead when Perry arrives. The how is a surgeons scalpel, but the who is not yet known.Written by

When Mason goes to Patton's hotel room, he enters the darkened bedroom. The light coming in through the window goes off before Mason switches on the room's lights. See more »
[after exiting his chartered plane a little airsick]
What's his name and where'd he go?
His name was Roberts. I dropped him at a bus for the Lakeview Hotel.
They haven't got a lake here, have they?
No, but the hotel has beds for you to lie down on.
That's a very clever remark. Take me to a taxi, please.

A classic whodunnit/comedy featuring the great Warren William
When I sat down to watch this I thought, another Perry Mason movie. I have always loved Perry Mason but this is the best damn one you will ever see.
As well as having a great plot and whodunnit side to it, it has got to be the funniest movie you are ever likely to see. A classic scene arises at the end of the movie when Perry has gathered everyone together to announce the killer, at the same time that the doctor is giving him a physical.
If you are into comedy/whodunnit movies then I highly recommend this one.
