One Body Too Many 1944
One Body Too Many is a highly enjoyable mystery-adventure. Old dark house movies truly never get old, and this is no exception.

The film opens with the reading of a rather peculiar will. The deceased Mr. Rutherford wishes to be interred in a glass coffin facing the stars, and only then will the actual terms of his will be disclosed. But if his request isn't met, the terms will be reversed, and those with the larger share of the inheritance will get the smaller share. This leads to his nefarious relatives coming up with various ways to make sure that they get the biggest portion of the old man's fortune. Into this mess stumbles a goofy life insurance salesman named Albert Tuttle (Jack Haley), who is mistaken for a detective and put in charge of guarding the corpse. He bumbles into all sorts of trouble and several people are murdered over the course of the night. Everyone is a suspect except for Rutherford's good-hearted niece, Carol, and romance blossoms between her and Tuttle.
