Plot Summary
Wally Benton (Red Skelton) isn't a detective, but he plays one on the radio. The confusion between Benton and his crime-solving persona results in a rather perilous situation when cult leader Joseph Jones (Conrad Veidt), greedy for the inheritance of one of his flock, blackmails Benton to craft the perfect murder. Under the watchful eye of Jones' burly thug, Sylvester (Rags Ragland), the actor has to hatch a flawless plot -- or improvise his way out of his predicament. He has until 11 o'clock.
