    I saw this a long time ago when I was a teenager (this was in the 60's) while it was shown on TV, I think it was a Canadian Station. It was hilarious and I remember I couldn't stop laughing over all of the botched attempts to murder Charles Colburn. I still remember elements of this farce which is saying something for me these days. I wish they would release this dark comedy. I think it's time has come.

    This was s sneak preview when I worked in the Theaters in 1957. It had our customers rolling on the floor. This was the funnist movie I have ever seen.
