Bumbling reporter Robert Kittredge has been fired after bungling his latest assignment. His career isn't all he's botched up: his girlfriend Chris is tired of waiting for him to marry her. When he gets a hot tip on some Nazi spies operating in Washington, D.C., he convinces Chris to help him break the story so he can get his job back. The pair soon find themselves in several awkward predicaments as they track the criminals down in a night club, a burlesque show, and face a final showdown at a beauty salon. Written by

In the scene where Bob Hope opens the music box we hear Bing Crosby singing his hit "When The Blue Of The Night". Hope says the line "That guy is haunting me". Crosby and Hope were co-stars in the famous "Road" pictures and often made cameos in each other's films. See more »
Bob Hope's comedy seems always funny, and this satire is funnier yet. Spies and secret foreign agents have the run of Washington. This movie is best described as Hope meets Axis spies, while Dorthory Lamour laments that the "dreadful Nazi" is responsible for the perfume shortage. The movie is replete with comic dialogue which the war weary audiences on the Homefront during World War Two must have found refreshing. Hope's best line in this one (about Lamour): "She must work the swing shift." Lamour's best line (to Hope): "Bet a new tire?"
