Peanuts White, a burlesque comic, is recruited by U.S. agents to impersonate international spy Eric Augustine (whom White resembles) in a mission to purchase a million-dollar microfilm in mysterious, exotic Tangier. There, he encounters the irresistable Lily Dalbray, an "old friend" of Augustine who is now dealing with his arch-enemy, Brubaker. But where is the real Eric? Comedy thriller with slapstick climax.

One of Hope's best efforts. Hedy Lamar plays the perfect foil to Bob as he plays two very different characters.
Contains one of the funniest sight-gag sequences in modern cinema and allows Hedy to show off the depth of her acting ability. It couldn't have been easy playing opposite Bob Hope anyway, but when she's not quite sure who is showing up had to make it even tougher.
This is a film I can watch over and over again. In fact, I've just about worn out my copy, yet I laugh out loud every time.
Great family viewing with the typical Hope silliness tempered by the very seductive Hedy Lamar.
