About Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid
A film noir parody with Steve Martin playing detective Rigby Reardon and Rachel Ward as the beautiful heroine Juliet Forrest. Filming in black and white allowed Reiner to mesh scenes from classic movies, cutting them in with the actors in this film, bringing Reardon up against assorted low-lives and floozies from classic 40s and 50s films. Luckily, he is ably assisted by Humphrey Bogart's Marlowe. You know how to whistle, don't you?
