A comedy thriller, HAVING WONDERFUL CRIME is one of those zany, offbeat films RKO specialized in for years. It comes off well, even though the plot is strictly mad-hatter, and the characters are as eccentric as the story. Michael J. Malone (O'Brien) is a criminal lawyer whose newly married

friends Jake (Murphy) and Helene (Landis) are forever getting him into crime-solving dilemmas. When a magician (Zucco) vanishes, the couple drag O'Brien into a frantic search for him that winds up at a mountain resort where they combine sleuthing and honeymooning. Director Edward Sutherland moves

the production along at whip-cracking speed, and the dialog sparkles with wisecracks and wit. Available on a videocassette double bill with THE DEVIL THUMBS A RIDE (1947).
