Two employees of a secluded hotel investigate a murder on the premises in which the goofy bellboy is the prime suspect.
After filming was completed, Lou Costello was bedridden for several months due to a relapse of rheumatic fever, which he originally battled in 1943. As a result, the duo did not make another film together until Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion (1950), a year later.
Perhaps you should choose the manner of your death. How would you like to die?
Freddie Phillips: Old age.
When Abernathy is looking over Freddie's shoulder during the so-called Bridge game, he starts on Freddie's right side. Then, after the camera cuts back from the close-up of Freddie's hand, Abernathy is on Freddie's left side.
The film begins animated versions of Abbott & Costello on a scaffold painting their names on a wall. (The bucket is labeled "BLOOD")Then there is the sound of a car screeching to a stop, and machine gun fire. "Meet the Killer" is written in bullet holes. "Costello" yells "Yoohoo! You didn't dot the "I"!" Then a dagger flies in and "Dots the 'I'", while the bucket of "Blood" is spilled. Then the frame drops, following the "Blood" as it spells out "Boris Karloff", and then the rest of the credits.
