I work my brains out for nine reels, and some bit player from Paramount comes over and steals my girl. That's the last picture I'll ever make for Goldwyn!

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.
