An eccentric, if not charming Southern professor and his crew pose as a classical ensemble in order to rob a casino, all under the nose of his unsuspecting but sharp old landlady.
The Professor's initial plan to trap and "immure" Mrs. Munson inside the tunnel is based on Edgar Allan Poe's Cask of Amontillado, in which Montresor, the main character traps another inside a wall in a cellar as an act of revenge. This idea is ... ...
Unh... Oh! Afternoon, Miss Munson.
Marva Munson: Afternoon, Sheriff. You know the Funthes boy?

During the end credits the gospel choir is shown performing the end song.
