Keenan Wynn plays here a cop who, besides his job issues, has also problems with his feet...From this point, you have got that it's a sort of comedy crime scheme which you have to deal with. After all, Arthur Hiller is directing. A woman is harassed by phone calls just being found dead and the suspect is an ex con who is also an acquaintance of our lead Keenan Wynn cop. You have here some elements that may you remind SORRY WRONG NUMBER...Good characters play between the cop and the suspect, a sort of COLUMBO scheme. So, to summarize, you have here a good and efficient story, solid, with much suspense that won't make you regret it.
