This sequel to You've Been Trumped (2011) investigates how land developers like Donald Trump use golf as an excuse to build huge luxurious resorts at the expense of the locals and their ecosystem, and abuse natural resources.
Detectives Dick Williams and Andy McAllister find themselves trying to solve several crimes at an isolated mentally-ill hospital, where the patients range from slightly daffy to criminally insane, and they don't know which is which. A gang is out to steal a fortune inherited by one of the patients and, before Dick and Andy solve the case, several patients are transferred to the cemetery. And 'tiddlie-winks" are indeed involved.Written by

When a doctor is killed at a mental hospital, detective Richard Arlen shows up to investigate the murder. At the same time, two sets of crooks descend on the facility to try to rob and swindle patient Andrew Toombes out of the quarter of a million dollars of cash he has.
It's one of those forced, frantic comedies that showed up fairly often, with several well-known comics of the era: Andy Devine, Edward Brophy, Tom Dugan, and Vince Barnett. Yet of all of them, the funniest performance is given by Marc Lawrence: not, alas, that the competition is so very difficult. Still, he distinguishes himself when he tries to torture Devine with a banana.
This not particularly funny comedy was one the movies included in Universal's 1957 Shock Theater package. I suppose they had to add in some odd ones to come up to 52 entries for those midnight TV movies.
