In the days before computers, debit cards and the internet, cash robbers were always a risk and a problem. In this case, a payroll delivery being made by train is robbed. A notable feature of the crime was its clockwork timing.

The money was insured but before the insurance company pays up, they want the crime investigated: did the railroad company take reasonable precautions? You know, the usual thing that insurance companies do to find a reason to avoid paying out.

Charlie Armstrong is tasked with the investigation, just as he and his wife are to leave on vacation. A railroad cop the couple knows is hopes to help them get to their booked vacation.
Of course, the insurance company doesn't want to pay up. As the investigation progresses, the conflicting needs of their respective employers makes things difficult. And, of course, even friends have secrets.

Directed and starring Mark Stevens, a second-tier leading man of the 1940s and 1950s who never quite made it to the front ranks of the movie stars. He became a staple of television, working until age 77.  Felicia Farr, Jack Lemmon's eventual wife, also stars. The story was written in part by Aben Kandel, who wrote  the cinematic masterpieces 'I was a Teenage Werewolf' and 'I was a Teenage Frankenstein.'

Are we supposed to watch this and make fun of it with the company of two zany robots?
