Synopsis of A Slight Case of Murder
A Slight Case of Murder is a spoof about gangsters who decide to go straight. With the end of Prohibition, bootlegger Remy Marco becomes a legitimate brewer. But he’s slowly going broke because the beer he makes tastes terrible, and everyone is afraid to tell him. After four years, with bank officers preparing to foreclose on the brewery, he retreats to his Saratoga summer home. There, he finds four dead mobsters who meant to ambush him, but were killed by their confederate whom they meant to betray. More and more problems begin to pop up in the life of the former bootlegger, as he has taken in a bratty orphan, and his daughter comes home with a fiancé that turns out to be a state cop.
