Baby Face Morgan (1942), Arthur Driefuss.

Hil-ar-i-ous! Simple short flick by wonderfully named "Producers Releasing Corporation." (It's like they lacked the dough to even think up a good name). When mob loses its beloved leader Mike Morgan, the brains behind the operation seeks out a small town rube to act as a front and unite the old gang. Edward Morgan, played by Richard Cromwell, sits behind NYC (oops - Central City!) office desk of shell company and sells racket-proof insurance to small businesses! Apparently a kleig light is visible in one of the shots - I didn't notice it probably because I kept laughing out loud.
