The Cheap Detective

"Who dunnit? This time it's Neil Simon who's really dunnit."

'THE CHEAP DETECTIVE' is a hilarious Humphrey Bogart send-up, blending the plots of 'Casablanca' and 'The Maltese Falcon' with the comedic vision of Neil Simon. Peter Falk is Lou Peckingpaugh, the worldly, cynical gumshoe who takes on thugs, crooks, Nazis, femme fatales and the Golden Gate Bridge in this terrific tribute to Bogie and the Hammett/Chandler school of hard-boiled detectives. An incredible ensemble cast does take-offs of characters made famous by Mary Astor (Madeline Kahn), Sidney Greenstreet (John Houseman), Lauren Bacall (Ann-Margret), Peter Lorre (Dom DeLuise), Ingrid Bergman (Louise Fletcher), and Paul Henreid (Fernando Lamas). Want more? How about Eileen Brennan, Sid Caesar, Phil Silvers, Nicol Williamson, James Coco, and Scatman Crothers - just a few of the many cast members who add to the merriment. 'THE CHEAP DETECTIVE' is the perfect entertainment for anyone who loves Bogart, films of the forties, or a good healthy laugh.
