Seems like Burns could've had a bigger part in this movie.

Here is what the cover has to say:
From the mind of George Lucas, creator of Star Wars and Indiana Jones, comes an all-new mystery-comedy-adventure set in the heyday of live radio. It's an energetic, fast-paced romp, sparkling with a brilliant cast, hilarious complications, and a toe-tapping melange of musical standards. The excitement begins as Chicago radio station WBN celebrates its first night on the air, complete with live dramas, comedy acts and orchestral interludes. But the real action is behind the scenes. Someone is murdering the company employees one by one, and station secretary Penny (Mary Stuart Masterson) and her estranged writer husband Roger (Brian Benben) must join forces to find the killer. The loony suspects - and potential victims-include the eccentric sound effects man (Christopher Lloyd), the military-minded station owner (Ned Beatty), the sultry singer (Anita Morris), the slick announcer (Corbin Bernsen), and the toupee-topped director (Jeffrey Tambor). Before the night is over, there will be romance, thrilling chases, narrow escapes, and a spellbinding, action-packed climax. Radioland Murders lovingly evokes radio's golden age with spectacular sets, imaginative costumes and witty appearances by George Burns, Harvey Korman and Bobcat Goldthwait. It's a side-splitting, edge-of-your-seat adventure: part farce, part mystery, and all fun!
