Storyline

Princess Margaret is travelling incognito to elope with her true love instead of marrying the man her father has betrothed her to. On the high seas, her ship is attacked by pirates who know her identity and plan to kidnap her and hold her for a king's ransom. Little do the cutthroats know that she will be rescued by that unlikeliest of knights errant, Sylvester the Great, who will lead them on a merry, and madcap, chase. Written by Alfred Jingle

Love it
4 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. The first time I seen it I was a little girl. I have seen it a few times over the years and love it even more. Bob's comedy has never been surpass. Hollywood lost one of it's finest stars when he passed away. This is my all time favorite of Bob Hope's. The costume's are just beautiful. The other actors in this film were just as good. At the end when Bing Crosby shows up and gets the girls just makes me laugh. Poor Bob worked so hard and still Bing got the girls. Another movies that Bob was in that I recommend is: The Seven Little Foys,Casanova's Big Night, The Lemon Drop Kid, and the one he played the dentist in... (I cannot remember the name) But he sang the song Button and bows.
