Vigorous Warner Brothers action director Lloyd Bacon isn't quite at home with this farcical material, which features Edward G. Robinson as a retired bootlegger who keeps finding his former business associates lying dead around his house (1938). This kind of thing is perhaps best played deadpan (as in Hitchcock's The Trouble With Harry); the frenzied reactions of the actors here take much of the edge off. With Ruth Donnelly, Harold Huber, Edward Brophy, and Allen Jenkins; Damon Runyon and Howard Lindsay wrote the original play. 85 min.
