Hedy Lamar was reportedly disappointed that her role was not more comic. She had been looking forward to doing a Bob Hope comedy, only to find she was playing her typical "femme fatale" role. See more »
In the scene when the phone in the suitcase rings, when Bob Hope's character finally gets it out, the receiver is off the hook. See more »

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.
