Storyline

The Divine Didi, a European actress known more for her bubble bath scenes than for her acting, decides she has had enough with bubble baths and wants to be taken seriously as an actress. So much so that she runs away during the middle of a scene while filming in Hollywood and winds up in Oregon. While she is staying in a hotel, the operator accidentally connects her with a real estate agent named Tom Meade. She asks Tom to bring her some food and when he does he suggests that she go to his cabin in the woods. She also asks him not to tell anyone where she is because she doesn't want to go back to Hollywood. Now Tom must keep the secret, especially from his wife and from his suspicious housekeeper Millie.

Hope Looks Up Elke Sommer
31 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

Oregon real estate agent Bob Hope (as Thomas "Tom" Meade) gets the titular "wrong number" by connecting with "bubble bath" movie star Elke Sommer (as Didi). She is angry over Hollywood filmmakers who keep putting her in sexy bathtub scenes. Of course, this film's strongest point is made by seeing Ms. Sommer under-dressed throughout. Although he intended innocent help, Mr. Hope is guiltily aroused by Sommer, who is staying in his cabin. When wife Marjorie Lord (as Martha) unexpectedly arrives, Hope must hide his sexy house-guest, who is running around in shirt-tails and panties...

The plot is murderously tedious. Near the end, a wise-cracking Hope is inserted into a chase scene, churning out one-liners. "Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number!" is best when watching Hope try to hide Sommer in his cabin. Her legs receive all the attention a 1960s "G-rated" camera allows. Helping out with the comedy as best she can is Hope housekeeper Phyllis Diller (as Lily). Her trade-mark electrified hairstyle is tame compared to the much funnier one worn by Ms. Lord.

*** Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number! (6/1/66) George Marshall ~ Bob Hope, Elke Sommer, Phyllis Diller, Marjorie Lord
