John J. Malone Mystery Double Feature
Murder becomes a laughing matter in two screwball mysteries based on the comic misadventures of attorney John J. Malone, one of the most popular fictional sleuths of the '40s and '50s.

The creation of famed mystery writer Craig Rice, Malone played detective in 11 novels and 39 short stories as well as on radio, TV and film, and this madcap big-screen collection spotlights two of his best.

In Having Wonderful Crime (1945), Malone (Pat O'Brien) helps two zany friends (George Murphy and Carole Landis) solve the disappearance of a stage magician who vanished during his act.

In Mrs. O'Malley and Mr Malone (1950), a wisecracking widow (Marjorie Main) teams up with Malone (James Whitmore) when they're framed for his client's murder.
