| Delightful B murder/comedy
I usually don't expect much from PRC movies. What a delightful surprise this was - it was funny, face paced, and entertaining. Also helping was that the print I saw was very good, from Amazon Instant Video. Henry Kruger (Bromberg), an honest and well-to-do newspaper publisher is ignored by his wife, son and daughter. Added to this is his ongoing dispute with a rival publisher who is a crook and a blackmailer. Angry over a photo the rival has published of his daughter, Kruger threatens him. Talking things over with his chauffeur, Mack Hogan (Jenks), Kruger decides to take a vacation and go to his hunting lodge. Unknown to him, the rival publisher is murdered by one of his victims and the murderer puts the body in the truck of his car. After arriving at the lodge, Kruger finds the body (thanks to the antics of a cute dog). There is a nosy highway patrolman hanging around and Kruger and Hogan struggle to keep the cop from finding the body. When the wife, son and daughter show up, the body is moved from room to room. Interestingly, Kruger's family keeps their knowledge about the body from the cop. Given this, the ending was a bit of a twist. I don't recall ever seeing Bromberg in a comedy role. He was excellent in the role as was Frank Jenks as the chauffeur. This movie is a lot of fun.
