Murder He Says 03/28/20

KL Studio Classics

This freaky laugh classic has been hiding in plain sight for nearly forever. Fred MacMurray is a census taker caught on the wrong side of the Mason-Dixon Line in George Marshall’s singular black comedy. Marjorie Main plays the terrifying matriarch of the Fleagle clan, a murderous mob of hillbillies with nothing on their pea-brained noggins except getting their mitts on some buried treasure. A little-seen classic finally gets its due: Honors flysis, Income beezis – Onches nobis, Inob keesis! With Helen Walker and Porter Hall, and Peter Whitney as weird triple-inbred twins. Is this a natural for Charlie Largent, or what?  On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
