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).

Format: VHS Tape
A truly hilarious and fun-filled movie in which MacMurray is nothing less than terrific. Fred plays a statistics gathering insurance salesman in the Ozarks. It's goodbye to sanity when we meet these hilarious hillbillies! The crazy twin killers are brilliantly portrayed by Peter Whitney (as Mert and Bert Fleagle) Barbara Pepper plays their sister Bonnie and Marjorie Main is an absolute riot as Mamie Johnson. Bonnie has hidden 70,000 dollars somewhere in the abode and MacMurray is kept confused by Main as a frantic search for the dough ensues. The antics and clever direction keep the laughs coming at rapid fire pace, and this movie is a unique gem.

I love this movie...SO much. I've loved it for years. I, too, had a copy taped off AMC and am awaiting a nice new copy of it, since I haven't seen it in years. McMurray is hysterical in his role of a salesman who stumbles upon a house of cooky crazies and gets involved in an intruiging case of murder. In ways it's almost a little spooky, but mostly it had me rolling in the aisles. I especially liked the part where Fred is stuck in that box with one of the twins legs dangling out and it looks like he's sitting down. Everytime I see that I almost die of hysterics. I love old movies and love reviewing them, and if anyone else loves old movies such as these, please email me! I love talking about them.

I have been looking for this movie FOREVER! I LOVE it! I literally split my side from laughter the first time I saw it which was over 15 years ago. I have not been able to find it sense. I go on the movie channels to see if anyone has it in their movie line-up but, NO ONE does! Now, I must admit, $58 is quite a chunk of change to pay for a VHS tape. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE put this jewel of a movie on DVD. I'm a college student, so enough said about how much money I have for non-essentials. so, PLEASE, put this movie on DVD!

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!

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.

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.

This is a great character-type of comedy, especially if you appreciate "Hillbilly humor". Good for a wholesome laugh, although some younger children may not like two eerie characters and a glowing dog. The plot is not intriguing, but quick-moving dialogue and wit keep this "ghost story" going. The portrayal of two brothers (who are hillbilly twins) by one actor is very amusing. For those who have a good, down-to-earth sense of humor or enjoy the art of slapstick or like that third-person comedy (you know something "they" don't know, as in I Love Lucy shows), this movie is an absolute MUST HAVE. A classic black-and-white Fred MacMurray on the order of The Absent-Minded Professor, only earlier and more physically comedic. I am so glad it is back, since I have looked everywhere for it, for almost ten years!
