From 20th Century Fox's B picture unit comes this little comic gem about a gangster who couldn't kill. Cesar Romero just can't quite bring himself to rub
out rival Sheldon Leonard's many torpedoes sent against him. What he has is
a private jail in the basement of his large estate where he just keeps them prisoners and treated pretty well at that. No homicides, no bodies.
He's also putting on a big campaign to win Virginia Gilmore complete with
housekeeper Charlotte Greenwood and borrowed son Stanley Clements. It
goes in fits and starts.
Sadly though Sheldon Leonard does kill rivals, but Romero's policy pays off in
the end big time. The henchmen for both get some laughs with Milton Berle
as Romero's top non-trigger man and Franks Jenks and Marc Lawrence as a
pair of Leonard's hoods who benefit greatly from Romero's no homcide policy.
Tall, Dark, And Handsome got a Best Original Screenplay Oscar and I will say
this one is most original.
