1982 FilmNoir parody. Its central joke is the use of StockFootage from well-known '40s movies (mostly noirs, though the women's melodrama ''Humoresque'' somehow crept in) to construct editing gags in both visuals (skillful cutting, stand-ins, and identical sets and costumes bring modern actors into classic scenes) and dialogue (pre-existing lines are recontextualized to the point of bizarrerie).

* CloudCuckooLander: Juliet's sister Leona (actually Barbara Stanwyck in 1948's ''Sorry, Wrong Number''). Before Rigby phones Leona, Juliet warns him that Leona's "disturbed", and the film [[LampshadeHanging Lampshades]] its own use of stock footage by having Leona's dialogue obviously belong to a different film (she denies that her father is dead and is needlessly rude to Rigby.)
