 In this slapstick comedy thriller,  Bud Abbott and  Lou Costello play would-be radio writers who find themselves involved in a real murder during the recording of a “whodunit” play. Trying to solve the crime,  they are suspected by the police-and targeted by the killer!  A  madcap chase through the radio station  features a riotous encounter with a fitful drinking fountain, a mix-up in a sound recordings library, and a runaway elevator. With a strong supporting cast including Mary Wilkes as a wisecracking secretary and William Bendix as a cop who’s even dumber than Lou,  Who Done It? has been called “one of Abbott and Costello’s best,”  by critic Leonard Maltin.
