Oliver undertakes the role of femme sleuth Hildegard Withers in this first picture in the short-lived series. While strolling through the Battery Park Aquarium in New York City she spots the body of a man floating in the penguin tank. With the help of the slow-witted Gleason, she solves

Coming Soon
