Synopsis

This hilarious spoof movie is based on an idea so simple as to be genius, but which could have gone horribly wrong. The film-makers take snippets from great old movies from the 1940s and 50s - and then insert among them new (but cleverly disguised) footage of star Steve Martin and his co-stars to make up an entirely new story which is ridiculous in the best way possible. The film noir "plot" finds suave detective Rigby Reardon (played by Martin) trying to crack a murder case on behalf of a beautiful girl who happens to wander into his office one day.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
