Detective Sketches (Trouble Is Eating My Pants)

"An unabashed goof on every hard-boiled detective story from The Maltese Falcon to Chinatown." —The Reader, Chicago

"The B-movie scenario, straight from Central Scripting, weaves a web of evil around a ton of four-star stereotypes; it yields at least two guffaws a minute." —Windy City Times
By Douglas Post.

Cast: 5m., 2w. A spoof of the film noir genre. Alex Diver is the best private investigator in town, according to the sign on his door. He gets tangled in a web of deception and death when the Lady In Green asks him to take a case.
