Bard Copy

He thinks someone murdered his dad,
that suitor of mom is the cad
To gather the proof he
starts acting all goofy
The rub is, he might just go mad

Strange Illusion (Edgar G. Ulmer, 1945). Edgar G. Ulmer's low budget update of Hamlet stars Jimmy Lydon, film's Henry Aldrich. Lydon plays a jive-talking teen feigning insanity to investigate the murder of his father. His best lines are "What's mixin', vixin? Been missin' my kissin'?"
