Wonder Man

Kaye is notably adept in a dual role: as a song-and-dance man murdered after witnessing a mob killing, and as the entertainer's timid 'intellectual' twin. Since the shy half of the family is unwilling to get involved in the case, the dead brother's restless spirit comes back to share his body while exacting his revenge, causing romantic complications for the two respective girlfriends who now find themselves in love with the same man. John P Fulton's effects work won a deserved Oscar.
