The opening title of this burlesque of a mystery melodrama announces that murder can be an enjoyable affair for everybody except the victim. And so it proves as theft leads to murder at a houseboat party. Although apparently not based on a stage play, the film takes place almost entirely on one set. Griffith, an experienced and popular comedian of the twenties, now almost forgotten, typically plays the suave, silk-hatted coroner with fixed ideas about human behaviour. This film and Hands Up were two of Griffith's most successful features with the public and critics
