As the private eye of private eyes, Steve Martin is Ridby Reardon. He's tough, rough and ready to take
on anything when Juliet Forrest (Rachel Ward) appears on the scene with a case. Her father, noted
scientist, philanthropist and cheesemaker has died mysteriously. Reardon immediately smells a rat and follows
a complex maze of clues that lead to the "Carlotta Lists." With a little help from his friends
Alan Ladd, Barbara Stanwyck, Ray Milland, Burt Lancaster, Humphrey Bogart,
Charles Laughton, etc., Reardon gets his man. An exciting, action-fun packed film the way 40s films
used to be!
