Watch that camera
The blow pipe murderer strikes again at a nightclub and the town seek the help of Joan Davis (Pilky) to solve things. She gets a sidekick to help her in comedy policeman Leon Errol (Mulligan) who sums up the film near the end when he says "This is getting monotonous". Yep.
My favourite characters are the couple who keep turning up to the nightclub to watch the next real-life murder take place – it's their idea of a good night out. But, overall, the film tries hard with annoying characters, obvious humour and slapstick that gets tiresome pretty quickly. So, the film becomes boring and seems way longer than its short running time. There are a few good ideas towards the end – the scary balloon in the mirror and the trapdoor that keeps propping up a body – and Joan Davis is good enough to lead things. It's just not very funny for a comedy. And as for comedy policemen – why? If you enjoy tedious films, then this is one for you.
