  • A corpse must be unearthed if a winning lottery ticket is to be found.

    This extremely silly story is done very lightly, and that's the right way to do it. The notion that poor Harry was actually murdered doesn't seem to upset, or even surprise, anyone. The ditzy Mrs. Archer, whose reaction to any crisis is to take a bath at once, isn't even too fazed when it appears that Harry's killer might also want to murder her. Playing her is Joanna Moore, the mother of Tatum O'Neal, and herself a pretty eccentric creature, if Hollywood legend is to be believed. Moore's career seemed to collapse in the early 60s, but she's charmingly scatty and attractive here.
