Murder, He Says
Directed by George Marshall
Brand New 4K Master! From George Marshall, the outstanding director of Destry Rides Again, The Ghost Breakers, The Blue Dahlia, Pillars of the Sky and How the West Was Won, comes this hilarious crime-comedy about Trotter Polling Company employee Pete Marshall (Fred MacMurray, Hands Across the Table, Quantez), who is sent down the backroads and into the backwoods in search of a missing fellow pollster. The city slicker soon finds himself mixed up with a family of homicidal hillbillies who are looking for stolen loot hidden on their property. Co-starring Marjorie Main (Ma and Pa Kettle) in an over-the-top performance as the matriarch of the insane family, Murder, He Says is a fast-paced farce in the grand tradition of such macabre classics as The Cat and the Canary (1939) and Arsenic and Old Lace (1944). The wonderful cast includes Helen Walker (Call Northside 777), Jean Heather (Going My Way), Porter Hall (The General Died at Dawn) and Peter Whitney (The Big Heat).
