Insurance salesman Albert Tuttle arrives at the Cyrus J. Rutherford estate to sell the millionaire some life insurance. Rutherford is already dead and his heirs have gathered at the mansion to hear the reading of the will. Rutherford's will won't be read until he is properly entombed and the heirs are forced to stay on the premises or be denied their inheritance. Tuttle soon finds himself mixed up in shenanigans involving Rutherford's niece, secret passages, a missing body and murder.Written by

Yeah, yeah, I know. But call me tomorrow. I gotta get outta here.
Hey, Tuttle. I got a date for you tonight. Dot's cousin just got into town and you and I...
I already have an engagement. I've had it for over a month: with Cyrus J. Rutherford.

ONE BODY TOO MANY (1944) ** (D: Frank McDonald) Jack (Tin Man) Haley is a likable funnyman in this film. Bela Lugosi's very small part as a butler is humorous as he keeps trying to poison people but to no avail. Decent little time waster, not as bad as you've heard.
