Going Spanish (1934)

* (out of 4)

Bob Hope made his film debut in this God-awful short, which runs ten minutes too long. In the film he plays an engaged man who takes a trip to South America with his fiancé. When the two get down there they both meet other people to whom they fall for. Rumor has it that Hope got out of his contract to Educational Pictures, the studio who made this, by insulting this film to a journalist who then put that quote in the paper. Thank God Hope did that or else we might not have the classic Hope of today. This film is incredibly bad from start to finish and I didn't laugh a single time. The movie is very poorly directed and Hope just looks lost in each of his scenes. Apparently the movie was re-edited after Hope became famous and the print I watched had the title Bob's Busy Day. This is only recommended to those who want to see where a comedy legend started.
