The Missing Corpse is a 1945 comedic mystery directed by Albert Herman. Bumbling but honest newspaper tycoon Henry Kruger's (J. Edward Bromberg) life becomes rather complicated when he discovers the corpse of his hated rival, Andy McDonald, in the trunk of his car. Henry has a big problem, it looks like he is the murderer. Shortly before, McDonald published a nasty story in his newspaper about Henry's daughter. Enraged, Henry publicly threatened McDonald. Also, to make Henry seem even more suspicious, he just happened to take a spur-of-the-moment trip to his remote hunting lodge, clearly not good. Henry is innocent, and to him is it clear what happened. McDonald was well known for his underworld ties and long suspected, but never proven, to use his newspaper to blackmail politicians and businessmen. Clearly, someone used Henry's momentary lapse of discretion to exact revenge. However, knowing he is innocent will not help him convince the police. With the help of his fast-talking chauffeur, Hogan (Frank Jenks), Henry tries to dispose of the body before he is arrested. However, the body will not stay disposed of, and keeps turning up in the most unfortunate places.moreless
