Topper Returns (1941)

An American comedy mystery directed by Roy Del Ruth, starring Joan Blondell and Carole Landis.
A young woman and her friend move into a house owned by her family. They switch bedrooms and the wrong girl gets murdered. She goes to Mr. Topper for help solving the crime.
More time killer films. Ugh. The plot and characters were standard as well as audio and video. Eddie Anderson did his best Mantan Moreland impersonation for this film and fooled me. This character was the only part of the film that stood out to me or raised any interest. Otherwise, it was just standard standard standard. I rate it poor for being too mediocre.
