Every dog has his day in this delightfully offbeat fantasy comedy. After his eccentric millionaire owner bequeaths his vast fortune to his beloved German shepherd, it looks like the pooch, King, is one seriously lucky dog. But after King is poisoned in a plot to steal the inheritance, he makes a deal in doggie heaven to return to Earth as private eye Rex Shepard (Dick Powell) and, with the help of a reincarnated racehorse (Joyce Holden), solve his own murder—yes, really!
