Still in the Maltese Falcon segment of Neil Simon's loving Bogart send-up, Peter Falk as San Francisco gumshoe Lou Peckinpaugh, following the murder of his partner, meets Madeline Kahn as multi-phasic Carmen, Mary Astor and many others, in The Cheap Detective, 1978.
Writer Neil Simon now taking his Bogart tribute character Lou Peckinpaugh (Peter Falk) full throttle into the Casablanca mode, introducing David Ogden Stiers, Scatman Crothers, Nicol Williamson the Nazi, but mostly Eileen Brennan as chanteuse Betty DeBoop, in The Cheap Detective, 1978.
Writer Neil Simon opens the follow-up to the genre parody Murder By Death, with schtick for San Francisco cops Vic Tayback and Abe Vigoda, with loose Maltese Falcon elements, setting up for Peter Falk, who'll play the lead in the Bogart tribute mash-up The Cheap Detective, 1978.
A green Cavalry lieutenant (George Hamilton) learns the ropes fast when he's shipped out West in A Thunder of Drums (1961).
Shooting a cheap horror movie in the back yard of an old Salt Lake City mansion, Faith Domergue is fading leading lady Gayle, John Ireland her director, unhappy with proceedings, with Carole Wells and Jerry Strickler the worried younger cast members, in The House Of Seven Corpses, 1974.
A few minutes into a fairly weird opening incantation, featuring only Faith Domergue (in her final movie role), whom we soon learn is really only in a horror movie, John Ireland directing her, John Carradine barking at him, early in The House Of Seven Corpses, 1974.
THE CHEAP DETECTIVE is a hilarious Humphrey Bogart send-up, blending the plots of Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon with the comedic vision of Neil Simon. Peter Falk is Lou Peckinpaugh, the worldly, cynical gumshoe who takes on thugs, crooks, Nazis, femme fatales and the Golden Gate Bridge in this terrific tribute to Bogie and the Hammett/Chandler school of hard-boiled detectives. An incredible ensemble cast does take-offs of characters made famous by Mary Astor (Madeline Kahn), Sydney Greenstreet (John Houseman), Lauren Bacall (Ann-Margret), Peter Lorre (Dom DeLuise), Ingrid Bergman (Louise Fletcher), and Paul Henreid (Fernando Lamas). Want more? How about Eileen Brennan, Sid Caesar, Phil Silvers, Nicol Williamson, James Coco, and Scatman Crothers - just a few of the many cast members who add to the merriment. THE CHEAP DETECTIVE is the perfect entertainment for anyone who loves Bogart, films of the forties, or a good healthy laugh.
A loving parody of THE MALTESE FALCON and CASABLANCA as seen through the eyes of ace private eye, Lou Peckinpaugh (Peter Falk).
