Director: Lewis D. Collins Cast: Frank Albertson, Stanley Andrews, Stuart Erwin

DVD (B&W)

Overview

Screen Guild's Killer Dill trods a comedy path previously taken by such films as Mr. Lemon of Orange and The Whole Town's Talking. Stuart Erwin stars as Johnny Dill, milquetoast door-to-door salesman who happens to be the exact double of a notorious Prohibition gangster. When the bad guy murders a rival, poor Dill is really in a pickle. Our hero finds himself stuck between the forces of good, represented by crusading attorney Allen (Frank Albertson), and the minions of evil, played by such veteran movie heavies as Mike Mazurki, Anthony Warde and Ben Welden. Erwin's well-thought-out performance helps to cover the gaping story holes and logic gaps.
