Quick Overview

Starring George Brent, Joan Blondell, Adele Jergens, Jim Bannon, Leslie Brooks

Directed by Henry Levin



Print: black/white

Runtime: 87 min.

Genre: comedy

Print Quality: B



Reminiscent of the classic "screwball" comedy-mysteries of the prewar years, Columbia's

The Corpse Came C.O.D stars Warner Bros. alumni George Brent and Joan Blondell as rival

Hollywood-based reporters Joe Medford and Rosemary Durant. When movie star Mona

Harrison (Adele Jergens) receives a dead body in her morning mail, Joe and Rosemary fall

over each other trying to solve the mystery and deliver a newspaper story "that'll tear this

town wide open." Joe deduces that the dead man was involved with a jewelry-smuggling

racket, while Rosemary chases down the stolen gems. Three murders later, the two

reporters expose the killer-and though it wouldn't be nice to reveal the killer's identity, it's

also worth noting that it won't be much of a surprise, either. Topheavy with comedy at the

expense of mystery, The Corpse Came C.O.D. is an entertaining trifle, with the actual

Columbia backlot standing in for the movie's fictional film studio.
