Editorial Reviews

Trotter Polling Company employee Pete Marshall (Fred MacMurray) is sent down the back roads and into the backwoods in search for a missing fellow employee in Murder, He Says (1945). The city slicker soon finds himself mixed up with a family of homicidal hillbillies who are looking for stolen loot hidden on their property. Featuring Marjorie Main (Ma and Pa Kettle) in an over-the-top performance, this fast-paced farce is in the grand tradition of such macabre favorites as The Old Dark House (1932) and Arsenic and Old Lace (1944).

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

First saw this film about 40 years ago, and laughed heartily at the over-the-top antics and silliness that still holds up to this day. Who knew that Fred MacMurray had such a comedic side to him, reminiscent of Cary Grant in "Arsenic and Old Lace"? His straight man to Marjorie Main's buffoonery-filled family brought back a lot of memories, and the classic scene of him in the cellar posing as the "short" twin, is hilarious.
My whole family has enjoyed this underappreciated movie once again. If you like old-fashioned fun with mystery, murder, romance and even treasure, you want to see this!

If you are a fan of Fred MacMurray then you must see this DVD. The quality was good although not remastered but much better than the old worn out video I had. It is a funny comedy that is full of silliness and laughter but is G rated and great for the entire family. One of those "they don't make them like they used to" films.

MURDER, HE SAYS (1945) - Not Rated, but obviously a `G' for great. 95 minutes

"Murder, He Says" is a hilarious 95 minute comedy about a pollster who finds himself at the mercy of a clan of homicidal hillbillies. Fred MacMurray, at his comic best, plays "Pete Marshall" a pollster for the Trotter Polling Company. His job is to travel the country asking people about their lifestyles; asking people such daring questions as: Do they have indoor-plumbing, a refrigerator and stove? When another pollster goes missing, MacMurray is sent to a tiny, backwoods town find him. The local folks send MacMurray "up the road" to the Fleagle Homestead, a family of radioactive, glow-in-the-dark hillbillies, lead by Marjorie Main of "Ma & Pa Kettle" fame. Ma Fleagle carries a mean looking shotgun and is suspicious of every stranger. Not surprising, as she and her twin boys, Bert and Mert (think Dweedledee and Dweedledum) both played by Peter Whitney, are searching for stolen loot hidden on their property. This fast-paced farce is in the grand tradition of "The Old Dark House" (1932) and Frank Capra's "Arsenic and Old Lace" (1944) and will keep you laughing with some the most original, side-splitting gags I've ever seen in a Universal comedy. Supporting players include Helen Walker and Porter Hall. Directed by George Marshall. Highly recommended.

The quality of the DVD was great; had no problems viewing it. Of course, I love this old movie or would not have bought it. I was concerned that the cover did not look like the VHS video I had in thet past and wondered if the quality would be less but there were no problems and I am happy with my purchase.

This is one of those old movies along the lines of "Arsenic and Old Lace" ~ a farce, silly but fun and entertaining. I saw it when I was a child and it was funny then; still is. I think even kids today might enjoy it because of the physical jokes and farce. It's just long enough to hold their attention without all the noise and glitz of today's children's movies.
