Charlie Naughton and Jimmy Gold play dimwitted detectives Smith and Smythe in the British farce Highland Fling. The story gets under way when Smith--or is it Smythe?--suggests that two of them go to Scotland, in search of a valuable will. Once they've arrived in a dank Scottish castle, Smythe--or is it Smith?--begins seeing ghosts. The clue to the missing will rests in a mantle clock....which is also missing. Highland Fling received limited American release through the auspices of 20th Century-Fox.
