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.

This is a typical Bob Hope movie in which "ole ski nose" delivers a lot of one- liners and plays his usual coward-turned-hero. (In this story, a burlesque comic turned spy.) The leading lady for this one was Hedy Lamarr. By 1951, the famous glamor girl of the Golden Age looked like she was a few years past her prime. She had very little sex appeal left.
Hope plays a dual role: "Peanuts White" and "Eric Augustine." He does a fine job with both, although in one of those roles he said very little. In all, not one of his more memorable movies, or funnier films, but it has enough decent laughs to somewhat entertain....but mainly, if you are a die-hard Bob Hope fan; otherwise, skip it. Bob did a lot of other films that were much better.
