When leaving, Creepy tells Madden he is a friend of the doctor's no-good brother Fred (Marten Lamont),while also throwing a few sinister-and-leering glances in the direction of Madden's wife Betty (Noreen Nash.)

The police show up and immediately tab Dr. Madden as the prime suspect based, evidently, on him having an office across the street.
Joe Palooka in the Knockout (1947) as Radio announcer
It's a Joke, Son! (1947) as Announcer at parade
The first Eagle-Lion film stars Kenny Delmar as Senator Beauregard Claghorn, his "Allen's Alley" resident-character heard on Fred Allen's radio program. Claghorn was a blustery, one-man-Chamber-of-Commerce for all things Southern, who had no tolerence for anything north of the Mason-Dixon line, although he made allowances for South Philly. The character inspired the creation of one of the most popular of the Warners' cartoon characters, Foghorn Leghorn, who re-worked most of the originals material and style. The title of this movie is a stock line- "it's a joke, son"---he would feed a befuddled Fred Allen each week. In the film, Claghorn gets into some financial difficulties and is forced by a machine-political gang to enter a race for state senator against his wife (Una Merkel) who appears to have a good chance to beat the political hack backed by the machine. Claghorn is in to siphon votes and ensure his wife's opponent will win and is expected to run a campaign that will defeat himself and his wife. But, he runs to win and the machine's henchies abduct him.
