I highly recommend Neil Simon’s 1978 movie, The Cheap Detective.

It is a superb knockoff of Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon, and a couple others I don’t recognize. But as for his treatment of the Bogart movies, this one is as entertaining as the originals. We know the Bogart movies pretty well, so we really enjoy the gags in this great spoof.

I’m kind of surprised I never knew of this movie until very recently.
