Description by OLDIES.com:
Frank Graham recreates his original CBS radio role of amateur detective Cosmo Jones and receives good-natured support from comic masters Mantan Moreland and Edgar Kennedy. Moreland is best remembered for playing Charlie Chan's chauffeur in Monogram's popular detective series. Vaudeville and musical comedy vet Kennedy was the master of the 'slow burn' and appeared in many famous Laurel and Hardy and Our Gang shorts.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 139 ratings.
You've seen this film a hundred times before and probably done much better but I still recommend this title. The script and characters are cliche ridden but enjoyable. The movie really kicks into high gear with the addition of Moreland's character. The man was a comedic genius and his sense of timing is impeccable. He always made it look so easy. A great way to spend an hour.
Yep: silly, funny, not too believable, but a good time will be had by all. The stereotyping of Mr. Moreland is shameful by our standards, but his character is well above that of any that poor Stepin Fetchit had to play. This is a good, fun, silly movie worth your time & money if you can overlook Hollywood's stupidity in their treatment of blacks. But one question: who ever thought Gale Storm could act?
