Who dunnit? This time it's Neil Simon who's really dunnit.
Spoofing the entire 1940s detective genre, and his own performances as a bumbling private detective, Peter Falk plays Lou Pekinpaugh, a San Francisco private detective accused of murdering his partner at the instigation of his mistress, the partner's wife, Georgia Merkle.

Made in 1978 and 100 times funnier than some of the crap they put out today.
