Corpses in bed, gangsters in the closet, cops at the keyhole and a blonde chasing the groom! A young newlywed couple from a small town decide to spend their wedding night at a posh hotel in New York City, since they only have one day before the husband has to report for duty in the army. However, instead of a romantic evening together, they find themselves mixed up with gangsters, stolen loot and missing bodies. 66 Minutes

The Last Three
a.k.a. Nazty Nuisance

Directed by Glenn Tryon

Bobby Watson ... Adolph Hitler
Joe Devlin ... Benito Mussolini
Johnny Arthur ... Suki Yaki
Jean Porter ... Kelam, Magician's assistant
Ian Keith ... Chief Paj Mab
Frank Faylen ... Seaman Benson
Henry Victor ... von Popoff
Emory Parnell ... Capt. Spense

Suki-Yaki Schickelgruber and Benito are falling into traps and mishaps again louder and funnier than those that laid them flat in "The Devil With Hitler"! It's a knock-'em-down and drag-'em-out comedy with block-busting laffs! Back in 1943, Americans needed a few laughs as World War 2 news was grim. This film mocked the enemy. The film pokes fun at all the WWII villains as actors play Hitler, Mussolini, Goebbels, Goering, Himmler with comic relish as the good guys triumph. 43 Minutes
