Silliest Movie Murder Mystery?

Recommended Posts

 

Good question, skim.

 

 

In general, I don't have an appreciation for any kind of "silly movie" (esp. "Airplane," "Naked Gun," "American Pie," etc.) I know some people do like them a LOT. They're just not my thing.

 

 

I DO like "Arsenic & Old Lace," because I consider it charm melded with comedy. There's a bit of mystery at the beginning.

"The Private Eyes", movie has the old walk this way gag and a funny one liner. After coming across a skeleton wearing a Santa suit..

Tim Conway...It's Santa! No wonder he didn't come!

Don Knotts.....Is there anything you don't beleive in.

*Whose Killing The Great Chefs Of Europe?*

 

1978, George Segal, Jacqueline Bisset, Robert Morley.

 

This is an obscure 70 film that has seem to vanished in the ether.

 

However, *Spoiler Alert!*

 

The boses secretary did it. she thought all the chefs food was making her boss unhealthy.

"Murder, He Says." Classic. Fred MacMurray, hillbillies. You can only get it on VHS. The best. And without doubt the VERY silliest. The scene with the round Lazy Susan table where everybody's soup glows in the dark when it's spun around is the clincher. (I guess it's soup. It could be grits. It's been a while.)

Thanks! I read the other day that you could only get it on VHS and I was going to try to find it. This makes it easy.

What of a movie in which a butler commits suicide in such a way as to make it look like he was murdered?

 

What of a movie in which a detective dies and a butler must investigate?

How about "The Mad Miss Manton," in which Barbara Stanwyck teams with Henry Fonda for the first time? Imagine Irene Bullock of "My Man Godfrey" fame and some fellow debutantes involved in a murder mystery, and you have this movie, silly but fun. Stanwyck goes screwball and makes it work.

Both sound like good ideas to me, and could be silly, or serious.
