Benny Hartman is some trouper. Here he is, stone cold dead, and he's still drawing crowds. The funeral for the 85-year-old cigar-chomping veteran of vaudeville, radio, stage and screen, has attracted every comedy superstar in Hollywood. But the guest of honor at this black-tie, A-list, Forest Lawn affair is soon to be upstaged by Steve Allen and Jayne Meadows. Just as Benny is being laid to rest, the famous sleuths discover slapstick king, Terry Parker, stabbed in the back in front of a mausoleum - a final mysterious word on his lips..."Ham." Which one of Steve's old cronies could possibly be capable of murder? Considering the victim's dying word, it could be just about anyone
