Pay phones, bongo drums and men with pretty hair...
14 December 2008 | by yonhopeSee all my reviews

This was released in 1959. It came out the same year as The many Loves of Dobie Gillis. Both productions feature a Maynard G. Krebs type character. Bob Denver's was a little more over the top and fun to watch. This movie is good. It is worth watching. Peter Falk does give a nice performance although it is doubtful this was a springboard for anyone. Maybe. Peter does his job well here as a bad guy who is the money man for a small group of criminals. This actually would have been a good vehicle for Elvis as the good guy trying to find the killer. Replace the poets and bongos with a tight 4 piece rock band. It is mentioned in the film that the long distance call is five dollars a minute so we can see some things have improved. This is similar to DOA and maybe both films as a double feature would be entertaining. This movie also needs more outdoor scenes with nice old cars that were new then. Also look at The Cheap Detective or Murder By Death if you like Peter Falk and detective yarns. A better title would have been easy to come up with, such as Burger Murder or Do You Want Everything on Your Burger?
