| A Comedy At The Looney Bin
When a doctor is killed at a mental hospital, detective Richard Arlen shows up to investigate the murder. At the same time, two sets of crooks descend on the facility to try to rob and swindle patient Andrew Toombes out of the quarter of a million dollars of cash he has.

It's one of those forced, frantic comedies that showed up fairly often, with several well-known comics of the era: Andy Devine, Edward Brophy, Tom Dugan, and Vince Barnett. Yet of all of them, the funniest performance is given by Marc Lawrence: not, alas, that the competition is so very difficult. Still, he distinguishes himself when he tries to torture Devine with a banana.

This not particularly funny comedy was one the movies included in Universal's 1957 Shock Theater package. I suppose they had to add in some odd ones to come up to 52 entries for those midnight TV movies.
