Of course they remade it. Hollywood remakes everything.

TCM is saluting director Roy Del Ruth tonight with several of his movies. One of those is Stop, You're Killing Me, which is airing at 1:30 AM. TCM's one-sentence synopsis sounds familiar:

The surprise appearance of four corpses interferes with a beer baron's plans to crash high society.

To be honest, I haven't seen Stop, You're Killing Me before, but when I saw the synopsis, I thought to myself that it sounds a lot like the plot of A Slight Case of Murder, and sure enough, IMDb agrees with me. Broderick Crawford plays the Edward G. Robinson part, while Claire Trevor is his wife.
