As the private eye of private eyes, Steve Martin is Rigby 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, a 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, Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart, Charles Laughton, etc., Reardon gets his man. Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid is an exciting, action-packed film the way 40's films used to be! Fancy a cup of my special java?
