A Slight Case of Murder is a 1938 film directed by Lloyd Bacon and based based on the play by Damon Runyon and Harold Lindsay. This offbeat comedy stars Edward G. Robinson spoofing his own gangster image as Remy Marco. This film tells the story of bootlegger Marco who announces he's going legit with the end of Prohibition. His fortune declines because the beer he makes tastes terrible and everyone is afraid to tell him so. Nearly bankrupt four years later, he has problems in his marriage because his wife has grown used to a high standard of living. Also, his daughter comes home with a boyfriend that turns out to be a state cop. More and more problems begin to pop up in the life of the former bootlegger.
