Basically a vehicle to capitilize on the comic talent of the popular Davis, teamed here with an aging Errol. A fair number of laughs are managed, Davis goes through the usual body twists, and she and Errol feed each other a number of swift one-liners. But the plot is very weak and holds

little, if any, interest. Davis plays the daughter of "Ma Pilkington," a small town heroine known for her great sleuthing abilities. (She also plays Ma in a brief, funny scene.) Thinking that the daughter will have the same abilities, the authorities call in Davis to solve several murders that

have all been done with a blowgun. She is given Errol to help out, and the two fumble their way through a number of misleading clues until, totally by accident, they discover the real killer. The unsatisfying ending, an easy way out for the writers, has the respected town doctor as the murderer:

he first drugs his victims and then stabs them with poison darts, with no apparent motive. Ruth Roman, who was soon to become a major star, had a brief walk-on part as a chorus girl. When she is leaving a theater, a guard approaches her, and she responds by opening her fur coat, revealing a very

sexy gown underneath, and saying, "I assure you officer, I'm not concealing anything." That's the type of line this film thrives on.
