One Body Too Many, a 1944 comedy-thriller starring Carol Dunlap, Jack Haley and Bela Lugosi

A comedy-thriller from 1944, One Body Too Many tells the story of a man who dies and his relatives gather to hear the will.

They’re a conniving bunch and one of them is a murderer, hoping to see off the others.

Albert Tuttle, an insurance salesman, gets himself innocently involved in it all.

The role is played by Jack Haley, the tin man in the Wizard Of Oz.

In the end, the murderer is found and it’s a happy ending.

It also stars Bela Lugosi (lead image) as Merkil the butler and Jean Parker as Carol Dunlap.
