|Never a Dull Moment is an American comedy crime film from Walt Disney Productions directed by Jerry Paris. The script was based on a novel by John Godey. Master cartoonist Floyd Gottfredson created a comic strip, Astro Pooch, to be used as a prop in the film.
Second-rate actor Jack Albany finds himself mistaken for fiendish killer Ace Williams and whisked off to master gangster Leo Smooth’s ortified mansion. He is forced to continue with the charade what with all the rough-looking hoods around, even when he finds he is to play a deadly role in the theft of the Van Gogh masterpiece “Field of Sunflowers”. But at least there is lovely art teacher Sally who could become an ally — if she ever believes his story.
Further complications ensue when the real Ace Williams shows up, making it even more difficult for Albany to keep up his false identity. Eventually, Albany outwits the gangsters and foils the robbery.
