(Clooney and Farmiga) keep the wit and chemistry bouncing back and forth like a modern-day Tracy and Hepburn, if you can picture Hepburn sashaying across a hotel room wearing nothing but a man's necktie looped around her waist. Full Review

Rating: 9/10 -- George Clooney is amazing in this even though he wasn't even born at the time it was made!

Description by OLDIES.com:

Two amateur "criminologists" become embroiled in a perplexing mystery when radio singer Rita Wilson (Lorna Gray) is murdered. In one of seven film appearances together, Frankie Darro and Mantan Moreland find plenty of laughs and adventure in their pursuit of the killer. Mantan Moreland, a veteran actor who delighted audiences as "Birmingham Brown" in the Charlie Chan series, provides many comedic moments including a soft shoe dance and a black face routine with Frankie, reminiscent of the radio show Amos n' Andy. Also appearing is Marjorie Reynolds as Anne Mason, the receptionist at the broadcasting station and would-be singer who helps with the investigation. Reynolds later showed her singing talent as Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire's love interest in Holiday Inn.

Product Description:

An old Monogram production about a radio station murder mystery which Darrow and Moreland try to solve.

ONE OF THE BETTER ONES Movie Lover: from Moline, IL US -- March, 17, 2007

ANYTHING WITH MANTAN MORELAND IN IT IS WORTH WATCHING BUT WHEN HE TEAMED WITH FRANKIE DARRO HE WAS AT HIS BEST. THE BOLD AND BRASH DARRO AND THE TIMID BUT BUT KNOWING MORELAND MAKE A COMBINATION FOR LAUGHS.THROW IN SOME MYSTERY AND YOU HAVE A FILM WELL WORTH WATCHING. DON'T MISS THIS CHANCE TO WATCH MANTAN MORELAND WHO WAS ONE OF THE MOST UNDERATED BLACK ACTORS OF HIS TIME


More Moreland! Movie Lover: from Toronto, ON CA -- February, 9, 2004

A delightful and very funny mystery/comedy featuring Mantan Moreland and Frankie Darro. Although Frankie’s character is in charge and they are not billed as a team they are most certainly a team. I can think of no other comedy teams from this era that are racially mixed. The story is set in a radio station and allows for some interesting “behind the scenes” settings. The print quality is generally quite good and Alpha Video should be highly praised for leaving the film intact and unedited. Potential buyers should be aware, however, that there are one or two sequences that may seem inappropriate by today’s standards.
