 / 
92 min.
Plot  Lou Peckinpaugh (Peter Falk), a bumbling San Francisco private detective, tries to prove himself innocent of his partner's murder while helping a bizarre array of characters recover a lost treasure. The film spoofs ''Casablanca'', ''The Maltese Falcon'', ''Chinatown'', and ''To Have and Have Not''. The scene in the restaurant with Peckinpaugh and Pepe Damascus mocks the opening scene of ''The Big Sleep''.
