One of the four projects in which Jack Arnold directed Bob Hope, "A Gobal Affair" has Larrimore (Hope) taking an abandoned baby home for the weekend, apparently one of his responsibilities at the UN building. Hope had just done Road to Hong Kong, the last ROAD film, in 1962. Of course, Larrimore's neighbor Mr. Snifter is suspicious, and keeps threatening to throw him out of his apartment. Viewers will recognize the neighbor ( John McGiver ) from "Breakfast at Tiffanys", and "Mame". All sorts of silly things happen to Larrimore and the baby, and they attempt to explain why they don't just turn the baby over to the police. There is a not-so-graceful edit while Larrimore is addressing the UN, and it sounds like a line was added later. Co stars Yvonne DeCarlo and Nehemia Persoff. Even appearances by Hugh Downs and Adlai Stevenson. Throw in some silly dates with women from Russia, Spain, and Japan who are out to prove a point, and you've got this movie. Starts out light, gets heavy in the middle, and must all be ironed out by the end. Where were we ...? oh that's right, it's all being done to figure out where the baby should grow up. Some quickie lines for Hope, but not his best work.
