The story revolves around Harry Witherspoon, an unassuming English shoe salesman, who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered, Atlantic City casino managing, Uncle Tony on a vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed in passing his uncle off as alive, he will inherit $6,000,000 but if he doesn’t the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn…or perhaps it will go to the gun-toting wife of the casino owner…? …but what’s the hen-pecked optometrist from New Jersey doing in the South of France… or the Arab…or the Italian? Definitely, Something Funny’s Going On!
