"IN A PIG'S VALISE is a musical comedy spoof of the hot-cool private-eye pulp fiction associated with Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. Except that it's wilder, much wilder. VALISE, among other oddities, features a stubby villain named Shrimp Bucket, an 'ethnic dancer' heroine named Dolores Con Leche (or, as the gumshoe hero, James Taxi, calls her, Sadness With Milk) and, in a bit part homage to Hammett's real-life lover, an undercover F B I agent named Lillian Hellman... Spiced with songs by August Darnell (Kid Creole) that bear such lines as 'Kiss me deadly' and 'Never judge a thriller by its cover' ... a] broad, winking satire of the language and plot conventions of the old books and movies." Richard Christiansen, The Chicago Tribune
