Francis X. Dignan:
When I was thirteen I had typhoid fever. When I got over it, I was bald for a while. Pink and shiny and bald. Everybody laughed at me. And I had a hassle with a kid whose old man was my old man's boss. He called me "Erich von Stroheim" for the third time and I let him have it.

For some reason this particular Bob Hope feature is hard to get, not out on any media and hasn't been seen in years. One hopes this will be corrected soon.
That Certain Feeling is a romantic triangle where George Sanders is in need of a ghost writer to help with his comic strip which ratings have fallen off. Fiancé Eva Marie Saint gives him a suggestion, her former husband Bob Hope who's another cartoonist but down on his luck. She also doesn't tell Sanders about her history with Hope.
George Sanders is his usual cad, but with elements of comedy. He's completely oblivious to all around him, a typical narcissist. Do you remember that in Woman Of The Year Katharine Hepburn wanted to adopt a child? Sanders decides the same thing and young Jerry Mathers is sent for. But the self centered Sanders doesn't have time for him and the future Beaver bonds with Hope.
Presiding over all of this is Pearl Bailey playing a very wise maid who gets some songs to sing, the title song, Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart and Hit The Road To Dreamland. Again Sanders doesn't know he's being subverted by his own hired help, he's so full of himself.
With Pearl Bailey who steals the film the right people get together in That Certain Feeling. Hope this one comes out, my bootleg was atrocious this film needs restoration.
