Just when you thought you were afraid to go back to look for a Murphy bed....Richard Dix's low-rent detective in Mysterious Intruder, an entry in Columbia's The Whistler series, has one in his appropriately low-rent apartment.

TCM showed the whole series (or most of it) recently, and I'm having a lot of fun with these brisk, entertaining mysteries based on the popular radio series. Usually there's some sort of twist ending just to juice things up a bit, I'm guessing Rod Serling grew up on the show and films.
