Noir comedy directed by Carl Reiner and starring Steve Martin, Rachel Ward and Barbara Stanwyck. Rigby Reardon (Martin) is a down on his luck private investigator hired by Juliet Forrest (Ward) to investigate the suspicious death of her father, a noted scientist and cheesemaker. When Reardon acquires a list of names of 'the friends and enemies of Carlotta', he begins to encounter many sinister individuals in his search for answers. Thanks to cleverly edited clips from some of Hollywood's classic noir films, these suspicious characters are portrayed by such revered stars as Ingrid Bergman, Humphrey Bogart and Burt Lancaster.
