COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Cast (feature film)
Two bumbling private eyes turn a boxer invisible to save him from being framed for murder.
Hypnotist uses his powers for revenge against King Louis XV's court.
The Norwick family has had a successful run on the vaudeville circuit, but now some of the family wants out. Mom is ready to retire on the family's farm, and daughter June wants to quit now that she's engaged. That only leaves Dad and his son Bert, who are happy to work as a twosome. Soon Bert's love of baseball overtakes his show biz ambitions, especially after he's offered a major league contract to play. Now he has to figure out how to break the news to his dad.
Philip Marlowe (George Montgomery) gets involved when limp-wristed and snidley Leslie Murdock (Conrad Janis) steals a rare doubloon from his mother (Florence Bates) to give to a newsreel photographer in exchange for film that is being used for blackmail purposes. Marlowe's involvement has him encounter a girl who goes into hysterics when touched by a man; a husband-killing woman; three corpses; a couple of scuffles in which he gets his clock cleaned; a secretary who thinks she has killed her boss, which is the reason Raymond Chandler called his story "The High Window", and a son (who qualifies as a S.O.B. by two definitions) who blackmails his widowed mother. So, what's not to like.
