When Hope and Carroll discover that Carroll's "contact" is actually an enemy spy, they grab the scarab with the secret message and successfully escape. But before Hope and Carroll grabbed the scarab, the phony "contact" was just about to use a code book to decipher the writing on the scarab. Hope and Carroll did not have the code book with them when they arrived at the airfield just as the war planes were about to leave for England. How did they decipher the message and send the planes via the correct route? See more »

It isn't moving properly. There's not enough gas to clean a doily.
Oh, that's fine. That's great! That means we're going to be stuck up here where everybody can see us.

The opening title cards read: "Bob Hope who calls Madeleine Carroll 'My Favorite Blonde'". See more »
I can't believe no one has reviewed this film until now. The teaming of Bob Hope and Madeleine Carroll in "My Favorite Blonde" is comic heaven. Madeleine Carroll shows a flair for comedy she was rarely allowed to display in her films.
"My Favorite Blonde" is funny, fast, and sharp in the banter between Hope and Carroll. Check out the scene where they get out of what appears to be certain capture: the most hilarious scene in the film. A fine supporting cast of Paramount contractees make this one of Bob Hope's best constructed comedies. It's plotting and editing make this even more of a road picture than the "Road" pictures, a precursor to "Romancing The Stone".
"My Favorite Blonde" seamlessly shows the mixing of '30's romantic comedy with World War II plots, something that would soon become obsolete as the war dragged on. Catch it whenever you can!
