Movie Info

With the end of Prohibition, hapless bootlegger Remy Marco (Edward G. Robinson) has decided to call it quits and become a law-abiding citizen. Years later, as his legitimate beer business and his marriage are simultaneously crumbling, he discovers four dead mobsters in his upstate New York home. Unfortunately that's the least of his troubles -- which include a rattail-wearing orphan that his wife (Jane Bryan) has taken in, and his daughter's boyfriend, who is a cop.

Audience Reviews for A Slight Case of Murder

  • Jul 29, 2007
    A Slight Case of Murder is a comedic take on the gangster movie. Edward G. Robinson plays a bootlegger who's forced to go legit once prohibition ends and has trouble keeping his business going on the up and up. He's also got a ton of problems that all come to a head the weekend his daughter introduces her copper fiance to her gangster dad and 4 stiffs end up in the spare room upstairs at his weekend house. A Slight Case of Murder has a few amusing and funny moments but those parts aside the movie's just okay. The dialogue's kind of fun even if the story's just so so. Probably a must for fans of Edward G. but beyond that no big deal.
